Lectures on Numerical Methods for Non-Linear Variational Problems
by R. Glowinski
Publisher: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research 1980
Number of pages: 265
Many physics problems have variational formulations making them appropriate for numerical treatment by finite element techniques and efficient iterative methods. This book describes the mathematical background and reviews the techniques for solving problems, including those that require large computations such as transonic flows for compressible fluids and the Navier-Stokes equations for incompressible viscous fluids.

In these notes, we describe the design of a small C++ program which solves numerically the sine-Gordon equation. The program is build progressively to make it multipurpose and easy to modify to solve any system of partial differential equations.
