This self-contained book describes 1D and 2D finite element codes and automatic hp-adaptivity strategies that are designed to deliver meshes in the full range of error levels. The book first considers standard 1D elliptic problems and a 1D wave propagation problem. It proceeds to discuss 2D elliptic problems, examining two model problems that are slightly beyond standard-level examples. The author also includes an entire chapter on geometric modeling and mesh generation. The book then focuses on 2D time-harmonic Maxwell equations. A companion CD-ROM containing 1D and 2D codes is included as well.
