Although the aim of this book is to give a unified introduction into finite and
boundary element methods, the main focus is on the numerical analysis of
boundary integral and boundary element methods.
Starting from the variational formulation of elliptic boundary value problems
boundary integral operators and associated boundary integral equations are
introduced and analyzed. By using finite and boundary elements corresponding
numerical approximation schemes are considered.
This textbook may serve as a basis for an introductory course in particular for
boundary element methods including modern trends such as fast boundary element
methods and efficient solution methods, as well as the coupling of finite and
boundary element methods.
