After many years of teaching elementary mechanics and being unhappy with the high price of existing texts and their tendency to lead students into a game of pattern matching as opposed to thinking about fundamentals, I decided to assemble my lectures into a book. So if you are looking for something different and concise on this topic you may wish to have a look at this book. The book is also well suited for use as a refresher due to its brevity.
There are a lot of coures on finite element methods and many that touch upon aspects of finite element error analysis. One thing, however, that is hard to learn in a consice form are the essential aspects of a priori error analysis. These involve a decent knowledge of variational properties of BVPs and a good understanding of interpolation theory. In a very very modest attempt to help some students in my undergraduate FEA course I prepared some notes to introduce them to some of the more mathematical aspects of FEA analysis. They are strictly one dimensional and linear to help with the understanding.
Here is a report on Citation Statistics written by the International Mathematical Union written in cooperation with the ICIAM and IMS.
Given all the discussion on impact factors and h-indicies, I thought many people may find this report interesting.
