 Publisher's summary

Praise for the First Edition "...fills a considerable gap in the numerical analysisliterature by providing a selfcontained treatment ...this is animportant work written in a clear style ...warmly recommended toany graduate student or researcher in the field of the numericalsolution of partial differential equations." SIAM Review TimeDependent Problems and Difference Methods, SecondEdition continues to provide guidance for the analysis ofdifference methods for computing approximate solutions to partialdifferential equations for timedependent problems. The book treatsdifferential equations and difference methods with a paralleldevelopment, thus achieving a more useful analysis of numericalmethods. The Second Edition presents hyperbolic equations in greatdetail as well as new coverage on secondorder systems of waveequations including acoustic waves, elastic waves, and Einsteinequations. Compared to firstorder hyperbolic systems, initialboundary value problems for such systems contain newproperties that must be taken into account when analyzingstability. Featuring the latest material in partial differentialequations with new theorems, examples, andillustrations, TimeDependent Problems and Difference Methods, Second Edition also includes: * High order methods on staggered grids * Extended treatment of Summation By Parts operators and theirapplication to secondorder derivatives * Simplified presentation of certain parts and proofs TimeDependent Problems and Difference Methods, SecondEdition is an ideal reference for physical scientists, engineers, numerical analysts, and mathematical modelers who usenumerical experiments to test designs and to predict andinvestigate physical phenomena. The book is also excellent forgraduatelevel courses in applied mathematics and scientificcomputations.
