This book contains chapters XI, XII and XIII of the authors’ multi-volume treatise “Analyse mathématique et calcul numérique”. The authors have well succeeded here in presenting an appealing and detailed text on integral equations (chapter XI), numerical methods for stationary problems (chapter XII), approximation of integral equations by finite elements (chapter XIII), singular integrals (annex). Some keywords from the paragraph headings may give more information. Chapter XI: Wiener-Hopf method, sectionally analytic functions, Hilbert problem, application to some physical problems, Sobolev spaces with weight, integral equations for boundary problems of electrostatics, for the Helmholtz equation, for problems of linear elasticity and for the system of Stokes. Chapter XII: finite elements for the problem of linear elasticity, non-conforming elements, problems of plates and shells, approximation of eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Chapter XIII: finite elements for Dirichlet and Neumann problems in \({\mathbb{R}}^ 3\) (simple and double layers), approximation of surfaces. Annex: convolution operators, Hilbert transformation, singular integral operators, Calderon-Zygmund theorem, Marcinkiewicz spaces. Although there are several references to previous volumes the book can independently be used with profit by a reader who has some general knowledge of partial differential equations, theory of functions and functional analysis.
