Firstly i would like to thank the authors for this book, i have come across several books on grid generation, i regard this book one of the best. For a student working in the field of computational fluid mechanics it will act as good reference on the condition that the student had covered several modules before hand, the modules are tensor calculus, vector analysis and linear algebra. The book is provided with excellent revision material and examples.
Chapter 1: Mathematical preliminaries-vector and tensor analysis, this chapter provides excellent revision material for the reader, very well written.
Chapter 2: classical differential geometry of space curves, short introduction.
Chapter 3: Differential geometry of surfaces in E^3.
Chapter 4: Structured grid generation-algebraic methods, very well written chapter with excellent examples.
Chapter 5: Differential models for grid generation, very well written chapter.
Chapter 6: Variation methods and adaptive grid generation, short introduction.
Chapter 7: Moving grids and time-dependent co-ordinate systems, this chapter gets the reader into the importance of grid generation in industrial applications, such as moving pistons which can also be implemented for pumps...etc.
Chapter 8: Unstructured grid generation, this chapter can be regarded as an introduction, not forgetting the importance of unstructured grids use in turbine blades, engine casing , gas turbine combustion chambers and aircraft modelling...etc.
I hope that was helpfull, good luck
