 May 8, 2001, 09:33 Galerkin #1 Andrej Guest   Posts: n/a Hi! I am using Galerkin method for heat transfer in a channel. Till now my sets of functions were sin() or cos(). I would like to use the Chebyshev polinomials, but I have a problem to determine coefficients. Does anybody know where to find a detail discription of calculation proceduce with the Chebyshev polinomials. Eq. which I am solving is: (1-z^2)dT/dx=d2T/dz2 Thanks, Andrej

As a good start check this book: Canuto, Hussaini, Quarteroni and Zang, 1988, Spectral Methods in Fluid Dynamics, New York, Springer Verlag. I am sure you can find that book at UCLA in the library of Applied Mathematics or something similar. THe chebyshev polynomial are actually given by: Tn(y)=cos(n arcos(y)) so that chosing y_j=cos(pi*j/N), where j=0,1,..N; gives you an easy way to get the coefficient at the points y_j, by using a cosine transform (FFT). Good luck, Patrick Godon

The second edition will be published by Dover Publications in August 2001. As someone very new to the CFD field, I have found the first edition (out of print) invaluable and easily readable.
