Publisher: University of Aberdeen 2002
Number of pages: 151
The overall aim of the course is: to describe the simplex algorithm and show how it can be used to solve real problems; to show how previous results in linear algebra give a framework for understanding the simplex algorithm; and to place the simplex algorithm in a more general context by describing other calculus-based and computer based optimization algorithms.

We present a new technique to apply finite element methods to partial differential equations over curved domains. Bramble-Hilbert lemma is key in harnessing regularity in the physical problem to prove finite element convergence rates for the problem.
