About this book


Providing the user with a unique insight into the finite element method, along with symbolic programming that fundamentally changes the way applications can be developed, this book is an essential tool for undergraduate or early postgraduate course, as well as a reference book for engineers and scientists who want to develop quickly finite-element programs. The use of symbolic computation in Maple system delivers new benefits in the analysis and understanding of The finite element method.
