I'm a chemical engineering undergraduate and I'm currently starting to work in a theoretical transport phenomena/colloid science group.
While my group has a nice code base for larger scale simulations (by this I mean Monte Carlo/Molecular Dynamics/Brownian Dynamics type methods) it seems that when it comes to smaller problems that can be reduced to numerically solving pde's (with finite difference/elements methods for example) they tend to leave it to each student to learn by themselves.
Since I'm just starting out, I'd like to learn these methods well for future work.
Can anyone recommend a good book or reference for numerical methods in transport phenomena?
I'd prefer if it was focused on finite differences since that is the method I currently have the most familiarity with, but I'd be perfectly happy with any method.
Some extra notes: I am aware and have access to LeVeque's book, which I've seen mentioned as the standard introductory textbook. However I'd prefer something that is more focused on the specific needs and methods of transport phenomena.
I would be awesome if it was available for less than around $120 since that is what I have available right now, but I understand that might be unrealistic.
