Book Title: Mixed and hybrid finite element methods

Author: Franco Brezzi and Michel Fortin

Book Description:

Numerous mathematical models of physical phenomena find their formulation in terms of partial differential equations. Obtaining the qualitative and quantitative characteristics that such models provide in turn requires computations based on reliable and stable numerical methods.

Brezzi and Fortin's classical monograph has all the fundamental results in numerical methods for partial differential equations. It is cited thousands of times and is an everyday reference for many researchers. This book has taught me the basic as well as advanced mathematical tools used in numerical analysis and has had a great impact on my scientific work.
