Abstract



An algorithm is developed for generating the system matrices for the Finite Element Method of solving some classes of second order partial differential equations problems using the linear triangular elements. This algorithm reduces the complexity normally associated with the finite element approximation and makes the powerful technique accessible to more people even on personal computers.
