Numerical Analysis of Spectral Methods: Theory and ApplicationsNumerical Analysis of Spectral Methods: Theory and Applications

David Gottlieb and Steven A. Orszag

CBMS-NSF Regional Conference Series in Applied Mathematics 26

A unified discussion of the formulation and analysis of special methods of mixed initial boundary-value problems. The focus is on the development of a new mathematical theory that explains why and how well spectral methods work. Included are interesting extensions of the classical numerical analysis.
