Finite Element Method

Abstract

Finite element methods are based on the variational formulation of partial differential equations which only need to compute the gradient of a function. Although unknowns are still associated to nodes, the function composed by piece-wise polynomials on each element and thus the gradient can be computed element-wise. Finite element spaces can thus be… (More)
