A Multigrid Tutorial, Second Edition


Much as we wish the book were perfect, we have to admit that there are some errors. We worked hard to minimize them, but a few have crept in anyway.

The book has been through several printings (four to date, in May 2007). The errata that was known for the first printing was corrected at the time of the second printing. Naturally, we have discovered that a few new errors crept in during our fix to the old errata; accordingly, we now have two errata sheets- one for the first printing, and a (much shorter!) one for the second and later printings.  We'll try and get all errors out of the next printing! 

Here is how to tell which printing you have.  On the copyright page the first two lines look like this:

    Copyright 2000 by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

    10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

The rightmost number in the second line is the printing number.  Shown above is the 1st printing.  The currently available version, the 4th printing, has a second line appearing thusly:

    10 9 8 7 6 5 4

Here are the most current errata sheets.

  • First Printing errata sheet as a postscript file.
  • First Printing errata sheet as a PDF file.
