Finite elements and spectral methods for hyperbolic equations

Part of the MS&A book series (MS&A, volume 2)


In this chapter, we will illustrate how to apply Galerkin methods, and in particular the finite element method and the spectral one, to the spatial and/or temporal discretization of scalar hyperbolic equations. We will treat both the continuous as well as discontinuous finite element cases.
