Inspired by a series of lectures given in Delft, Bristol, Lyons, Zurich, and Beijing, this book is a corrected reprint of the 1992 classic. Provides a complete introduction to multigrid methods for partial differential equations, without requiring an advanced knowledge of mathematics. Topics such as the basic multigrid principle, smoothing methods and their Fourier analysis, course grid approximation, multigrid cycles and results of multigrid theory are treated. Applications in computational fluid dynamics are discussed extensively.
