SIREV Review

"This is a great book for students. I taught a one-semester course in multilevel methods, and used this book for half of the material. I'm a very happy customer. The exposition is clear and well motivated. There is just the right amount of theory. The authors have gone out of their way to make it easy for a student to implement the methods, see their performance, and do their own experiments. The problems in the book are thoughtfully designed. My students really enjoyed the book." —C. T. Kelley, North Carolina State University

This second edition of the popular A Multigrid Tutorial preserves the introductory spirit of the first edition while roughly doubling the amount of material covered. The topics of the first edition have been enhanced with additional discussion, new numerical experiments, and improved figures. New topics in the second edition include nonlinear equations, Neumann boundary conditions, variable mesh and variable coefficient problems, anisotropic problems, algebraic multigrid (AMG), adaptive methods, and finite elements.

This introductory book is ideally suited as a companion textbook for graduate numerical analysis courses. It is written for computational mathematicians, engineers, and other scientists interested in learning about multigrid.
