Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This book is mainly concerned with the robust numerical solution of convectionreaction-diffusion problems of the form e u + a . ?u + bu = f. In particular, the emphasis is on singularly perturbed problems where the coefficient of diffusion e is much smaller than |a| or |b|. Such problems arise in many areas of science and engineering, and they are well known to be difficult to solve numerically due to the presence of boundary layers that are very thin compared to the size of the domain. The aim of the book is to show that the combination of an appropriately chosen piecewise uniform mesh and a monotone numerical discretization can be used to effectively solve a wide range of singularly perturbed boundary value problems.robust numerical solution of convectionreaction-diffusion problems of the form e u + a . ?u + bu = f.
