A guide to MATLAB for beginners and experienced users by Brian R Hunt ( Book )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a short, focused introduction to MATLAB. It contains concise explanations of essential MATLAB commands, as well easily understood instructions for using MATLAB's programming features, graphical capabilities, simulation models, and rich desktop interface. Written for MATLAB 7, it can also be used with earlier (and later) versions of MATLAB

New a priori FEM error estimates for eigenvalues by Andrew V Knyazev ( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"We analyze the Ritz method for symmetric eigenvalue problems and prove a priori eigenvalue error estimates. For a single eigenvalue, we prove an error estimate that depends mainly on just the approximability of the corresponding eigenfunction and provide explicit values for all constants. For a multiple eigenvalue we prove, in addition, apparently the first truly a priori error estimates that show the levels of the eigenvalue errors depending on approximability of eigenfunctions in the corresponding eigenspace."--Authors' abstract

Superconvergence in the Generalized Finite Element Method ( )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In this paper, we address the problem of the existence of superconvergence points of approximate solutions, obtained from the Generalized Finite Element Method (GFEM), of a Neumann elliptic boundary value problem. GFEM is a Galerkin method that uses non-polynomial shape functions. In particular, we show that the superconvergence points for the gradient of the approximate are zeros of certain systems of non-linear equations that do not depend on the solution of the boundary value problem. For approximate solutions with second derivatives, we have also characterized the superconvergence points of the second derivatives of the approximate solution as the roots of certain systems of non-linear equations. We note that it is easy to construct smooth generalized finite element approximation
Eigenvalue Problems by Ivo Babuška ( Book )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This section presents several model eigenvalue problems arising in physics and engineering. Specifically discussed are some important physical interpretations of eigenvalues and eigenfunctions. Some of the model problems discussed here will serve as illustrative examples in connection with the approximation methods considered later. A clear understanding of the fundamental ideas is presented, but not a detailed treatment. For a more complete discussion of the material in this section refer to Courant-Hilbert 1953
Survey of Meshless and Generalized Finite Element Methods: A Unified Approach ( )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In the last few years meshless methods for numerically solving partial differential equations came into the focus of interest, especially in the engineering community. This class of methods was essentially stimulated by difficulties related to mesh generation. Mesh generation is delicate in many situations, e.g., when the domain has complicated geometry; when the mesh changes with time, as in crack propagation, and remeshing is required at each time step; when a Lagrangian formulation is employed, especially with non-linear PDE's. In addition, a need to have flexibility in the selection of approximating functions (e.g., the flexibility to use non-polynomial approximating functions), played a significant role in the development of meshless methods. There are many recent papers, and two books, on meshless methods; most of them are of engineering character, without any mathematical analysis. In this paper we address meshless methods and the closely related generalized finite element methods for solving linear elliptic equations, using variational principles. We give a unified mathematical theory with proofs, briefly address implementational aspects, present illustrative numerical examples, and provide a list of reference to the current literature. The aim of the paper is to provide a survey of a part of this new field, with emphasis on mathematics. We present proofs of essential theorems because we feel these proofs are essential for understanding the mathematical aspects of meshless methods, which has approximation theory as a major ingredient. As always, any new field is stimulated by and related to older ideas. This will be visible in our paper
Special Finite Element Methods for a Class of Second Order Elliptic Problems wth Rough Coefficients ( )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In this paper we consider the approximate solution of a class of second order elliptic equations with rough coefficients. Problem of the type considered arise in the analysis of unidirectional composites, where the coefficients represent the properties of the material. We present several methods for this class of problem, and show that they have the same accuracy as usual methods have for problem with smooth coefficients. We refer to the methods as special finite elements methods because they are of finite element type but employ special shape functions, chosen to effectively model the unknown solution

Generalized Finite Element Methods: Main Ideas, Results, and Perspective ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This paper is an overview of the main ideas of the Generalized Finite Element Method (GFEM). We present the basic results, experiences with, and potentials of this method. The GFEM is a generalization of the classical Finite Element Method in its h, p, and h-p versions as well as of the various forms of meshless methods used in engineering
