Multigrid presents both an elementary introduction to multigrid methods for solving partial differential equations and a contemporary survey of advanced multigrid techniques and real-life applications.

Multigrid methods are invaluable to researchers in scientific disciplines including physics, chemistry, meteorology, fluid and continuum mechanics, geology, biology, and all engineering disciplines. They are also becoming increasingly important in economics and financial mathematics.

Readers are presented with an invaluable summary covering 25 years of practical experience acquired by the multigrid research group at the Germany National Research Center for Information Technology. The book presents both practical and theoretical points of view.

* Covers the whole field of multigrid methods from its elements up to the most advanced applications
* Style is essentially elementary but mathematically rigorous
* No other book is so comprehensive and written for both practitioners and students
