Practical Aspects and Applications
- The first comprehensive treatment of the theory and applications of Richardson extrapolation
- Discusses in detail the stability issues of the method
- Includes concrete worked out examples and applications
Aims and Scope
Scientists and engineers are mainly using Richardson extrapolation as a computational tool for increasing the accuracy of various numerical algorithms for the treatment of systems of ordinary and partial differential equations and for improving the computational efficiency of the solution process by the automatic variation of the time-stepsizes. A third issue, the stability of the computations, is very often the most important one and, therefore, it is the major topic studied in all chapters of this book.
Clear explanations and many examples make this text an easy-to-follow handbook for applied mathematicians, physicists and engineers working with scientific models based on differential equations.
