From the reviews of Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equations in Science and Engineering:

"The book by Lapidus and Pinder is a very comprehensive, even exhaustive, survey of the subject . . . [It] is unique in that it covers equally finite difference and finite element methods."

"The authors have selected an elementary (but not simplistic) mode of presentation. Many different computational schemes are described in great detail . . . Numerous practical examples and applications are described from beginning to the end, often with calculated results given."
Mathematics of Computing

"This volume . . . devotes its considerable number of pages to lucid developments of the methods [for solving partial differential equations] . . . the writing is very polished and I found it a pleasure to read!"

Industry Reviews

"The style is informal and the content pragmatic with minimal technical detail, making for easy reading. It differs from many other books in trying to explain how organic structures can be confirmed with routine NMR methods without distraction from underlying theory." (Chemistry World, 1 June 2011)
