Summary

 

Course/Module

Lecturer, Finite Element Methods. (Undergraduate)

Finite Elements: Numerical Analysis & Implementation - M5A47

Aims

 Finite element methods form a flexible class of techniques for numerical solution of PDE's that are both accurate and efficient.  Having originated from structural mechanics, they now have a broad range of applications across science and engineering.  They also have a powerful mathematical abstraction based on the language of function spaces, inner products, norms and operators.  The aim of this course is to show how this abstraction can be used not only to analyse stability and convergence of finite element methods, but also to understand the reanslation of the abstraction into software.
