The authors cover the fundamentals of linear theory of finite elements from both the mathematical and physical viewpoint, with an emphasis on error estimation and adaptive methods for reducing error estimations for better reliability. The p and hp versions used by aerospace companies, and now becoming common throughout industry in all stress analysis programs, are also described.
