T h e basic purpose of this pape r is to describe and discuss P D E C O L , which is a new compu te r sof tware package for numer ica l ly solving coupled sys t ems of nonl inear par t ia l differential equat ions (PDE's ) in one space and one t ime dimension. T h e package implements finite e l emen t collocation me thods based on piecewise polynomials for the spat ia l discretization techniques. T h e t ime integrat ion process is then accompl ished by widely acceptable p rocedures [7] which… CONTINUE READING
