From the Publisher: This book is particularly useful to graduate students, researchers, and engineers using finite element methods. The reader should have knowledge of analysis and functional analysis, particularly Hilbert spaces, Sobolev spaces, and differential calculus in normed vector spaces. Other than these basics, the book is mathematically self-contained. About the Author Philippe G. Ciarlet is a Professor at the Laboratoire d'Analyse Numerique at the Universite Pierre et Marie… 


The purpose of this project is to derive stability estimates for a finite element method for linear, elliptic partial differential equation in non-divergence form. The thesis begins by introducing

Finite element theory on curved domains with applications to DGFEMs

In this paper we provide key estimates used in the stability and error analysis of discontinuous Galerkin finite element methods (DGFEMs) on domains with curved boundaries. In particular, we review

Finite element exterior calculus: From hodge theory to numerical stability

This article reports on the confluence of two streams of research, one emanating from the fields of numerical analysis and scientific computation, the other from topology and geometry. In it we

Stability estimates for h-p spectral element methods for elliptic problems

In a series of papers of which this is the first we study how to solve elliptic problems on polygonal domains using spectral methods on parallel computers. To overcome the singularities that arise in

Application of mixed schemes of the finite element method to the solution of problems of nonlinear filtration theory

INTRODUCTION The mixed finite element method is widely used for the solution of elliptic equations. An important feature of this method is the use of auxiliary unknowns. This enables one to find

Theory of adaptive finite element methods: An introduction

A self-contained and up-to-date discussion of AFEM for linear second order elliptic partial differential equations (PDEs) and dimension d>1, with emphasis on the differences and advantages ofAFEM over standard FEM.

Finite Element Exterior Calculus with Applications to the Numerical Solution of the Green–Naghdi Equations

The study of finite element methods for the numerical solution of differential equations is one of the gems of modern mathematics, boasting rigorous analytical foundations as well as unambiguously
