The Numerical Solution of Elliptic EquationsThe Numerical Solution of Elliptic Equations

Garrett Birkhoff

CBMS-NSF Regional Conference Series in Applied Mathematics 1

A concise survey of the current state of knowledge in 1972 about solving elliptic boundary-value eigenvalue problems with the help of a computer. This volume provides a case study in scientific computing -- the art of utilizing physical intuition, mathematical theorems and algorithms, and modern computer technology to construct and explore realistic models of problems arising in the natural sciences and engineering.


Typical Elliptic Problems; Classical Analysis; Difference Approximations; Relaxation Methods; Semi-Iterative Methods; Integral Equation Methods; Approximation of Smooth Functions; Variational Methods; Applications to Boundary Value Problems.
