One-Dimensional Shape Functions
The Galerkin finite element method requires the use of the test functions w in polynomial form. We will first define the local and global linear and quadratic Lagrange and Hermite interpolation shape functions. These interpolation shape functions are used in the next two chapters to solve one-dimensional steady-state second-order and fourth-order boundary value problems by finite element methods.
