There are 323 exercises with computations varying parameters, model variations and mathematical analysis.


This book illustrates the evolution of models such as 1D, 2D and 3D temperatures in a cooling fin.































This book has a variety of applications including:


            Hydraulic pressure with two wells in saturated porous medium












Concentration of a pollutant plume in 3D













            Value of an American put option contract













            Image restoration














It introduces parallel programming and message passing interface (MPI). It has

a number of MPI codes illustrating basic MPI subroutines. Many of the applications are

revisited from a parallel algorithm perspective. MPI versions of matrix products, explicit methods,

SOR, domain-decomposition, PCG and GMRES are given.
