Finite difference method

• approximate differential equations using finite difference equations to approximate derivatives

Collocation method

• uses a finite-dimensional space of basis functions and collocation points to approximate PDEs

Galerkin's technique

• uses orthogonality of a set of basis function to turn PDEs into coupled sets of ODEs

Finite difference method

• The derivatives of the PDE are approximated by linear combinations of function values at the structured grid points, using a Taylor series expansion

Collocation method

• Define the basis function (usually polynomials) and approximate solution:

• Calculate residual function by substituting the candidate function into the original PDE

• Choose the collocation points at which the candidate function must exactly match

Galerkin's method

• Define the basis function (usually orthogonal polynomials) and approximate solution as

• Calculate residual function by substituting the candidate function into the original PDE

• Minimize the residual using Least Squares Error
