  An adaptive finite element method for the wave scattering with transparent boundary condition
Jiang X., Li P., Lv J., Zheng W.  Journal of Scientific Computing 72(3): 936-956, 2017. Type: Article

Jiang et al. discuss the numerical solution of acoustic wave scattering by an obstacle in two dimensions. The problem is defined on an open domain and requires a truncation of the domain (see Givoli [1]) using one of the following well-known metho...

  Finite difference/finite element methods for distributed-order time fractional diffusion equations
Bu W., Xiao A., Zeng W.  Journal of Scientific Computing 72(1): 422-441, 2017. Type: Article

Bu et al. discretize the fractional diffusion equation in time using a modified compound trapezoid formula, and the Caputo fractional derivative in space is done using the L1 method, thus obtaining an unconditionally stable semi-discrete variation...

  Advanced finite element simulation with MSC Marc: application of user subroutines
Javanbakht Z., Öchsner A.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2017. 347 pp. Type: Book (978-3-319476-67-4)

Commercial (and other) finite element packages give their users the option to replace some of the package’s built-in subroutines with user-defined customized versions. This feature provides great flexibility and permits, for example, enhanci...

  A weak Galerkin finite element method for a type of fourth order problem arising from fluorescence tomography
Wang C., Zhou H.  Journal of Scientific Computing 71(3): 897-918, 2017. Type: Article

The finite element method (FEM) was introduced by engineers [1] for the solution of partial differential equations (PDEs) and analyzed later, for example, by Ciarlet [2]....

  Finite element methods for computational fluid dynamics: a practical guide
Kuzmin D., Hämäläinen J.,  SIAM, Philadelphia, PA, 2014. 321 pp. Type: Book (978-1-611973-60-0)

Kuzmin and Hämäläinen’s book provides a general overview of finite element methods (FEMs) when applied to computational fluid dynamics (CFD), giving a gentle introduction to these fields, a survey of recent advanced works in t...

  The equilibrium state method for hyperbolic conservation laws with stiff reaction terms
Zhang B., Liu H., Chen F., Wang J.  Journal of Computational Physics 263151-176, 2014. Type: Article

Zhang et al. propose a new fractional-step method for the numerical solution of advection equations with stiff source terms. In general, it is too difficult to obtain satisfactory numerical approximate solutions for stiff reaction problems, becaus...

   Numerical integration on GPUs for higher order finite elements
Banaś K., Paszewski P., Macio P.  Computers & Mathematics with Applications 67(6): 1319-1344, 2014. Type: Article

Finite element methods (FEMs) are numerical methods for finding approximate solutions to partial differential equations. When a problem is presented, a mesh and a finite element space are required to be defined. Regular choices for meshes are tetr...

   GPU acceleration of data assembly in finite element methods and its energy implications
Hu X., Hsieh G., Tang L., Hammond S., Chen D., Niemier M., Barrett R.  ASAP 2013 (Proceedings of the 24th IEEE International Conference on Application-Specific Systems, Architectures and Processors, Washington, DC,  Jun 5-7, 2013) 321-328, 2013. Type: Proceedings

Finite element methods are a standard tool for the numerical simulation of many phenomena in physics, engineering, and other areas. As the processes to be simulated become more and more complex, and the accuracy requirements become higher, the com...

  On convergence of the penalty method for unilateral contact problems
Chouly F., Hild P.  Applied Numerical Mathematics 6527-40, 2013. Type: Article

Chouly and Hild consider the contact problem of an elastic 2D and 3D body. Small strains are assumed and the contact is a straight line segment in 2D and a polygon in 3D. They reformulate the variational inequality using the penalty method, and pr...

  Spectral methods: algorithms, analysis and applications
Shen J., Tang T., Wang L.,  Springer Publishing Company, Incorporated, New York, NY, 2011. 486 pp. Type: Book (978-3-540710-40-0)

Differential equations arise in various branches of science and engineering, such as fluid and solid mechanics, biology, material sciences, economics, ecology, and computer science. Some well-known examples include the Navier-Stokes equations in f...
