Abstract:  Finite Element analysis is a numerical method to solve PDEs. FEM turns a PDE into a algebraic system which can be solved to get an approximation to the original solution of the PDE.

This will be a very basic introduction to Finite Element Method. I will discuss some abstract results which can can applied to study the existence and uniqueness of solution of elliptic PDEs. I will also discuss how FEM works with an example ( Poisson equation with zero boundary). If time permits I can also run some MATLAB codes to find discrete solution to the Poisson equation.
