Many physics problems have variational formulations making them appropriate for numerical treatment by finite element techniques and efficient iterative methods. This book describes the mathematical background and reviews the techniques for solving problems, including those that require large computations such as transonic flows for compressible fluids and the Navier-Stokes equations for incompressible viscous fluids.

The overall aim of the course is to present modern computer programming techniques in the context of mathematical computation and numerical analysis and to foster the independence needed to use these techniques as appropriate in subsequent work.
