how to caculate the Galerkin projection
hell0:
I don not how to caculate the Galerkin projection. ( laplace(T), phi ) Where phi is the basis, and i want to project the laplace(T) onto the phi, but 1), what is the meaning of ( ) , and i have the value of T only at discrete points, then how to caculate it. regards! 
Re: how to caculate the Galerkin projection
Let us assume a(x) and b(x) two functions in an interval [0,1]. Then (a,b)=integral a(x) b(x) dx
means the inner product, (dot product), between the functions a and b. This can be considered as a projection of a() into b() and the other way around. This is much more simple, for the case of simple vectors, e.g. a=[1 0 1] and b=[1 0 0] (a,b) = a b cos( angle (a,b) ) Equivalent, (laplace(T),phi) means that you want to determine the projection of laplace(T) into phi. Why do you have only discrete points? Are you using a Galerkin spectral method? Any way, if you have only T at some points, e.g. T[i] , then you can compute approximately laplace(T) at the same points, laplace(T)[i]. Then you can approximate the inner product as (laplace(T),phi)= laplace(T)[1] phi[1] Deltax + laplace(T)[2] phi[2] Deltax+ ... where Deltax is the space between the points.
