About these proceedings
This volume contains current progress of a new class of finite element method, the Discontinuous Galerkin Method (DGM), which has been under rapid developments recently and has found its use very quickly in such diverse applications as aeroacoustics, semi-conductor device simulation, turbomachinery, turbulent flows, materials processing, Magneto-hydro-dynamics, plasma simulations and image processing. While there has been a lot of interest from mathematicians, physicists and engineers in DGM, only scattered information is available and there has been no prior effect in organizing and publishing the existing volume of knowledge on this subject. The current volume organizes this knowledge and it covers both theoretical as well as practical issues of the Discontinuous Galerkin method.
