In addition to the finite-difference, finite-element, and spectral techniques, there are computational techniques that do not fall directly into these categories. These techniques can be useful and, therefore, we have included them in this chapter.


Stream Function Vorticity Potential AIAA Paper Point Vortex Vortex Method 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
