Fast Multipole Boundary Element Method
Theory and Applications in Engineering
Cambridge University Press
First Edition; Published on August 24, 2009; ISBN-10: 0521116597; ISBN-13: 9780521116596
This is the first book on the fast multipole boundary element method (BEM), which brings together the classical theories in BEM formulations and the recent development of the fast multipole method. Two- and three-dimensional potential, elastostatic, Stokes flow, and acoustic wave problems are covered, supplemented with exercise problems and computer source codes. Applications in modeling nanocomposite materials, bio-materials, fuel cells, acoustic waves, and image-based simulations are demonstrated to show the potential of the fast multipole BEM. This book will help students, researchers, and engineers to learn the BEM and fast multipole method from a single source.
