Mathematical Theory of Subdivision: Finite Element and Wavelet Methods (1st Edition) by Sandeep Kumar, Ashish Pathak, Debashis Khan

Publisher: Chapman and Hall/CRC

ISBN: 9781138051584

Summary of the Book:
This book provides good coverage of the powerful numerical techniques namely, finite element and wavelets, for the solution of partial differential equation to the scientists and engineers with a modest mathematical background. The objective of the book is to provide the necessary mathematical foundation for the advanced level applications of these numerical techniques. The book begins with the description of the steps involved in finite element and wavelets-Galerkin methods. The knowledge of Hilbert and Sobolev spaces is needed to understand the theory of finite element and wavelet-based methods. Therefore, an overview of essential content such as vector spaces, norm, inner product, linear operators, spectral theory, dual space, and distribution theory, etc. with relevant theorems are presented in a coherent and accessible manner. For the graduate students and researchers with diverse educational background, the authors have focused on the applications of numerical techniques which are developed in the last few decades. This includes the wavelet-Galerkin method, lifting scheme, and error estimation technique, etc.
Features:
• Computer programs in Mathematica/Matlab are incorporated for easy understanding of wavelets.
• Presents a range of workout examples for better comprehension of spaces and operators.
• Algorithms are presented to facilitate computer programming.
• Contains the error estimation techniques necessary for adaptive finite element method.
This book is structured to transform in step by step manner the students without any knowledge of finite element, wavelet and functional analysis to the students of strong theoretical understanding who will be ready to take many challenging research problems in this area.
