**Lectures on Numerical Methods for Non-Linear Variational Problems**

by R. Glowinski

**Publisher**: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research 1980**ISBN/ASIN**: 3540775064**Number of pages**: 265

**Description**:

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.
