3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

FELPO is a finite element program for the solution of minimization problems of quadratic functionals on two-dimensional domains, as they arise in the numerical solution of elliptical partial differential equations of second order.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Consider a domain G(X,Y) with the boundary DG,  where a function U(X,Y) has to be calculated, which minimzes the quadratic functional over G with the integrand:

F(U) = F1*UXX2 + 2*F2*UX*UY + F3*UYY2 + F4*U2 + 2*F5*U

The Fi are functions of X and Y, which have to satisfy the conditions:

     F1,F3 > 0; F2 >=0   and   F1*F3 - F2*F2 > 0

On the boundary DGE, essential boundary conditions

                   U=U(DGE)

have to be prescribed. On the rest of the boundary DG-DGE, the solution fulfills the natural boundary conditions

   (F1*UX+F2*UY)*NX+(F2*UX+F3*UY)*NY = 0

automatically. NX and NY are the direction-cosines of the outer normal of the boundary.

The solution is equivalent to the solution of the partial differential equation

   DX(F1*UX+F2*UY) + DY(F2*UX+F3*UY) = F4*U + F5

under the boundary conditions described above.
