Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate some of the numerical methods available to solve partial differential equations intractable to analytic solutions with a view towards: 1. Indicating where particular methods appear most applicable, from the standpoints of accuracy, easy of solution, minimum expenditure of effort; and 2. Indicating the accuracy to be expected in the use of two of the more powerful methods investigated as applied to a problem of elasticity.
