Lectures on Numerical Methods for Non-Linear Variational Problems

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.

Our basic aim has been to present some of the mathematical aspects of the finite element method, as well as some applications of the finite element method for solving problems in Elasticity. This is why some important topics are not covered here.
