These proceedings originated from a conference commemorating the 50th anniversary of the publication of Richard Courant's seminal paper, Variational Methods for Problems of Equilibrium and Vibration. These papers address fundamental questions in numerical analysis and the special problems that occur in applying the finite element method to various fields of science and engineering.

Editorial Reviews

Mathematics of Computation
Anyone who is working in the field of finite elements would certainly find some of the papers in this book interesting...a valuable addition to any library.
Applications of Mathematics
...contains Courant's original groundbreaking paper and papers by over 80 experts in finite element methods which deal with both fundamental questions in numerical analysis and special problems that occur in applying the finite element method to various fields of science and engineering.
