Perhaps not state-of-the-art but still mostly valid. gl hf __________________ "Trying is the first step to failure." - Homer Simpson

In the end we have the same gross structure of matrix equations and invert the matrix to solve for the dependent variables.

Therefore, it should either be in a new post, or at least in a thread that is related. Although, I must thank you for digging such an interesting subject! 2) I am very surprised that nobody mentionned that the center of the finite-element method is the multiplication of the unknowns vector by a test function. The introduction of such a test function allows for an integration by parts in the integral form of the equations of conservation.
