Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations is a collection of papers dealing with techniques and practical solutions to problems concerning continuum mechanics, fluid dynamics, and plasma physics. One paper discusses the important considerations that lead to an efficient nonlinear dynamic finite element analysis using improved analysis techniques. Another paper describes the results obtained from fully discrete methods of higher order in time (order 3 and 4) for second order parabolic initial boundary value problems in which the equations have time dependent (or nonlinear) coefficients. Another paper reviews concepts of ellipticity of finite-difference approximations to general elliptic partial differential systems, with examples utilizing Cauchy-Riemann equations or Navier-Stokes equations. One paper describes fluid-dynamic computing using basic equations, boundary conditions, time dependent gas dynamics, shock waves, stream-function-vorticity methods, and an example on the formation of a spherical vortex. Another paper evaluates a specific problem arising in the study of the equilibrium of plasma confined in a machine of the Tokomak type. The collection is suitable for mathematicians, physicists, and investigators in the field of continuum mechanics, fluid dynamics, plasma physics.
