David J. Silvester (online CV; complete list of publications)
I have a Chair in Numerical Analysis in the School of Mathematics.
My preferred email address is d.silvester (at)
I have supervised many PhD students and postdoctoral researchers over my academic career.
Several of my research papers are highly cited: see Google Scholar or Researcher ID.
Please refer to my BiBTeX database if you want to cite my work.
You can take a peek at one of my recent lectures on SlidesLive.
I also have a distinguished academic ancestry. (My Erdös number is 3.)
I like to connect with students using Twitter.

Check out the current release of the Incompressible Flow & Iterative Solver Software (IFISS) Matlab and Octave toolbox. This open source software package is associated with the second edition of Finite Elements and Fast Iterative Solvers with applications in incompressible fluid dynamics.

Check out our highly-regarded (SUMS) textbook on Essential PDEs using Amazon books.

  A gentle introduction to the mathematics underlying finite element convergence theory can be found in the Finite Element Primer.

  My lecture notes on finite element approximation may also be of interest.
