About this book


This book provides a comprehensive discussion of Fourier and Chebyshev spectral methods for the computation of incompressible viscous flows, based on the Navier-Stokes equations. The book is in three parts. The first part presents the fundamentals of the Fourier and Chebyshev methods for the solution of the Navier-Stokes equations considered in vorticity-streamfunction and velocity-pressure formulations. The third part of the book is concerned with the solution of stiff and singular problems, and with the domain decomposition method.
Every topic is accompanied by numerical examples, which further illustrate and assess the methods. Graduate students and researchers in applied mathematics and engineering working in fluid dxnamics, scientific computing, and numerical analysis will find this book of interest.
