Reseña“This book of about 150 pages introduces the FEniCS software toolset in 5 chapters ... . The targeted audience includes applications scientists in the area of PDEs who seek for an easy way to implement their problems, and who are willing to invest the time to learn how to work with FEniCS.” (Gudula Rünger, zbMATH 1376.65144, 2018)
This book offers a concise and gentle introduction to finite element programming in Python based on the popular FEniCS software library. Using a series of examples, including the Poisson equation, the equations of linear elasticity, the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations, and systems of nonlinear advection–diffusion–reaction equations, it guides readers through the essential steps to quickly solving a PDE in FEniCS, such as how to define a finite variational problem, how to set boundary conditions, how to solve linear and nonlinear systems, and how to visualize solutions and structure finite element Python programs.
