Wavelet Methods for Elliptic Partial Differential Equations

Karsten Urban


Wavelets have become a powerful tool in several applications by now. Their use for the numerical solution of operator equations has been investigated more recently. By now the theoretical understanding of such methods is quite advanced and has brought up deep results and additional understanding. Moreover, the rigorous theoretical foundation of wavelet bases has also lead to new insights in more classical numerical methods for partial differential equations (pde's) such as Finite Elements. However, sometimes it is believed that understanding and applying the full power of wavelets needs a stro ... More

Keywords: wavelets, numerical solution, Galerkin schemes, adaptive methods, elliptic partial differential equations
