The Galerkin finite element method for elliptic problems

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


In this chapter, we describe the numerical solution of the elliptic boundary-value problems considered in Chap. 3 by introducing the Galerkin method. We then illustrate the finite element method as a particular case. The latter will be further developed in the following chapters.
