The Finite Element Method for a Parabolic Problem

Part of the Texts in Applied Mathematics book series (TAM, volume 45)

Abstract

In this chapter we consider the approximation of solutions of the model heat equation in two space dimensions by means of Galerkin’s method, using piecewise linear trial functions. In Sect. 10.1 we consider the discretization with respect to the space variables only, and in the following Sect. 10.2 we study some completely discrete schemes.
