In this book the finite element method is consequently considered as a method for the solution of differential equations. Thus, the stuff is presented in a very abstract way, but this book contains very interesting informations that would only be found by extensive searching in literature! I can not recommend this book for beginners, maybe for mathematicans, but not for engineering students. There are better books that present the FEM in a more mechanical approach without abstraction. However, this book is highly recommended for people who are a little bit familiar with FEM!
