Variational Equation

  1. Nov 16, 2011 #1
    Hi, sorry if this isn't the correct forum.
    I'm trying freefem++ to solve some some problems with finite elements method, but in the documentation the following form of the variational equation is used:

    [itex]\displaystyle\int_{T_{h}} (\frac{{\partial u}}{{\partial x}}\frac{{\partial v}}{{\partial x}} + \frac{{\partial u}}{{\partial y}}\frac{{\partial v}}{{\partial y}} )dxdy =\displaystyle\int_{T_{h}} fvdxdy[/itex]

    I've searched for that form, but I wasn't able to find it

    Could you tell me about a book or any source where I can study that form of the variational equation?

    Thanks
