We will discretize (3.22) by employing Galerkin’s method, which uses the same vector functions for expansion and testing. The spatial derivatives that cause problems will be removed by the testing process. In order to test these derivatives, we introduce special vector expansion functions, called “facet elements” and “edge elements,” that comprise products of pulse and tent functions.
