Item description for The Least-Squares Finite Element Method: Theory and Applications in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Electromagnetics (Scientific Computation) by Bo-nan Jiang...
Here is a comprehensive introduction to the least-squares finite element method (LSFEM) for numerical solution of PDEs. It covers the theory for first-order systems, particularly the div-curl and the div-curl-grad system. Then LSFEM is applied systematically to permissible boundary conditions for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations, to show that the divergence equations in the Maxwell equations are not redundant, and to derive equivalent second-order versions of the Navier-Stokes equations and the Maxwell equations. LSFEM is simple, efficient and robust, and can solve a wide range of problems in fluid dynamics and electromagnetics, including incompressible viscous flows, rotational inviscid flows, low-Mach-number compressible flows, two-fluid and convective flows, scattering waves, etc.

This is an important book ! Jul 29, 1998
Why so? It draws attention to the use of the least-squares method for the solution of problems in fluid mechanics and electromagnetics. This method promises a remarkable simplification in the use of the finite element method in these fields as well as a unification with other fields such as structural analysis. Regardless of your prior experience with cfm or cem, this approach should be tried before you settle on any given approach.
