|Title:||Defect correction from a galerkin viewpoint|
|Citation:||Maths Technical Papers (Brunel University). Oct 1985, pp 1-27|
|Abstract:||We consider the numerical solution of systems of nonlinear two point boundary value problems by Galerkin's method. An initial solution is computed with piecewise linear approximating functions and this is then improved by using higher—order piecewise polynomials to compute defect corrections. This technique, including numerical integration, is justified by typical Galerkin arguments and properties of piecewise polynomials rather than the traditional asymptotic error expansions of finite difference methods.|
