Solving PDEs in Python

Publisher: Springer 2017
Number of pages: 148
This book offers a concise and gentle introduction to finite element programming in Python based on the popular FEniCS software library. Using a series of examples, including the Poisson equation, the equations of linear elasticity, the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations, and systems of nonlinear advection-diffusion-reaction equations, it guides readers through the essential steps to quickly solving a PDE in FEniCS, such as how to define a finite variational problem, how to set boundary conditions, how to solve linear and nonlinear systems, and how to visualize solutions and structure finite element Python programs.

This course takes a tour through many algorithms of numerical analysis. We aim to assess alternative methods based on efficiency, to discern well-posed problems from ill-posed ones, and to see these methods in action through computer implementation.
