Description - Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for Solving Elliptic and Parabolic Equations by Beatrice M. Riviere

Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods for solving partial differential equations, developed in the late 1990s, have become popular among computational scientists. This book covers both theory and computation as it focuses on three primal DG methods - the symmetric interior penalty Galerkin, incomplete interior penalty Galerkin, and nonsymmetric interior penalty Galerkin - which are variations of interior penalty methods. The author provides the basic tools for analysis and discusses coding issues, including data structure, construction of local matrices, and assembling of the global matrix. Computational examples and applications to important engineering problems are also included. Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for Solving Elliptic and Parabolic Equation is divided into three parts: Part I focuses on the application of DG methods to second order elliptic problems in one dimension and in higher dimensions. Part II presents the time-dependent parabolic problems-without and with convection. Part III contains applications of DG methods to solid mechanics (linear elasticity), ?uid dynamics (Stokes and Navier-Stokes), and porous media ?ow (two-phase and miscible displacement). Appendices contain proofs and MATLAB(R) code for one-dimensional problems for elliptic equations and routines written in C that correspond to algorithms for the implementation of DG methods in two or three dimensions.
