This well-written book explains the theory of spectral methods and their application to the computation of viscous incompressible fluid flows in clear and elementary terms. It begins with an introduction to the fundamentals of spectral methods and then moves on to cover, in particular, the Fourier and Chebyshev methods. Examples are included. Chapters 6 and 7 handle streamfunction-vorticity and velocity-pressure fomulations of the Navier-Stokes equations. Chapter 8 and 9 address special topics such as self- adaptive coordinate transform, treatment of singularities, and domain decomposition. The work will be useful to those teaching in the field at the graduate level, as well as to researchers working in the area.
