Fast Solvers for Mesh-Based Computations presents an alternative way of constructing multi-frontal direct solver algorithms for mesh-based computations. It also describes how to design and implement those algorithms.The book's structure follows those of the matrices, starting from tri-diagonal matrices resulting from one-dimensional mesh-based meth
