A Discontinuous Galerkin Method (DG Method) is a type of Finite Element Method that is an adaption of a type called a Galerkin Method or Continuous Galerkin Method. DG Methods have the advantage of handling discontinuities, and are useful in calculations of fields that include shocks (Shock Waves). A DG Code is a Code making use of the method. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galerkin_method Referenced by: Numerical Analysis |
