Written for graduate-level classes in applied and computational mathematics, this book discusses the discontinuous Galerkin family of computational methods for solving partial differential equations. Topics covered include nonlinear problems, higher-order equations, and spectral properties of discontinuous Galerkin operators. This text is also available as an e-book (ISBN 978-0-387-72067-8).
MATLAB is used throughout the text to illustrate the concepts presented. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB M-files is available for download.
