Description and practical details

As part of the May12 Initiative, an online colloquium talk by Prof. Neela Nataraj. The target audience for this presentation is undergraduate and postgraduate students in Mathematics.


Title: A Short Introduction To The Finite Element Method


Abstract: The finite element method (FEM), introduced by engineers in the late 1950s and 1960s, is a numerical technique employed to solve problems described by ordinary and partial differential equations with appropriate boundary /initial conditions and problems involving functional minimization. The initial part of the talk will focus on the application of FEM to two-point boundary value problems, providing insights from both mathematical and engineering viewpoints. The subsequent part will discuss a range of linear and nonlinear problems in different applications where FEM has proven to be successful.
