Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

See this word a lot on internet articles about FEM and such. However, no one explains what actually the term means? I could see that it has something to do with starting with approximate solutions.

Anyone has any idea about this?

Thanks,

Luc
