This e-book presents several research areas of elliptical problems solved by differential equations. The mathematical models explained in this e-book have been contributed by experts in the field and can be applied to a wide range of real life examples. Methods explained include pre-conditioned conjugate grid models, higher order discretization and finite element mesh generation. This e-book should be a useful reference for scholars and professionals interested in elliptical partial differential equations.
