"...a much needed unique systematic treatment of the subject."
 

ZENTRALBLATT FÜR MATHEMATIK


"...a good up-to-date account of some modern methods in numerical analysis. ...should be of interest to researchers in finite and boundary element methods and...accessible to graduate students interested in these topics as well.

Presentation, style and layout...are all very good. This review can warmly recommend Trefftz Finite and Boundary Element Method to anyone looking for a clear introduction to the subject."

The Hybrid-Trefftz finite element method has become increasingly popular as an efficient numerical tool in computational mechanics and has been widely used in the analysis of plane elasticity, thin and thick plate bending, Poisson’s equation, shell, and heat conduction. Providing the first systematic treatment of this subject, this book details the development of techniques and ideas, beginning with basic principles, and illustrates new concepts with simple examples wherever possible.

The text is designed for researchers, postgraduate students and professional engineers requiring an accessible introduction to this field, and little mathematical knowledge beyond the usual calculus is needed. For convenience matrix presentation is used throughout.
