Objective

Basics of calculus of variations, numerical methods for variationally formulated differential boundary-value problems. The studied boudary-value problems are mathematical models of processes often occuring in the practice of civil engineers.

Syllabus

1. Functional and its Euler equation, the simlest problem of calculus of variations.
2. Concrete examples of functionals and related Euler equations. Elementary solutions.
3. Derivation of an elliptic problem for ODE of degree 2, the problems of heat conduction and distribution of polution.
4. Discretization of the elliptic problem for ODE of degree 2 by the standard finite difference method, stability of numerical solutions.
5. Variational (weak) and minimization formulation of the elliptic problem for the elliptic problem for ODE of degree 2.
6. The Ritz and Galerkin methods.
7. Discretization of the elliptic problem for ODE of degree 2 by the finite element method.
