Can someone point me to a simple introduction to the use of finite-element methods to find eigenvalues and eigenfunctions for a Sturm-Liouville problem? In my searching I've seen various suggestions that this is now the dominant method, but I've had no luck in finding an actual explanation, with examples.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks for any help!
