'Carefully written and remarkably error-free, Braess's book introduces partial differential equations (PDEs) and methods used to solve them numerically. It introduces PDEs and their classification, covers (briefly) finite-difference methods, and then offers a thorough treatment of finite-element methods, both conforming and nonconforming. After discussing the conjugate gradient method and multigrid methods, Braess concludes with a chapter on finite elements in solid mechanics. The book is written from a theoretical standpoint, and the standard convergence theorems and error estimates are provided and proved. Although a background in differential equations, analysis, and linear algebra is not necessary to read the book, it would be helpful. The level is that of a graduate course in a mathematics department. Practical considerations for coding the various methods are only occasionally discussed. There are exercises at the end of each section varying from two to six problems, about two-thirds of them theoretical in nature. The book can be used as a resource. Extensive and valuable bibliography. Recommended for graduate students.' J. H. Ellison, Grove City College
