The description of many attention-grabbing phenomena in technology and engineering ends up in infinite-dimensional minimization or evolution difficulties that outline nonlinear partial differential equations. whereas the advance and research of numerical equipment for linear partial differential equations is sort of entire, purely few effects come in the case of nonlinear equations. This monograph devises numerical tools for nonlinear version difficulties bobbing up within the mathematical description of part transitions, huge bending difficulties, picture processing, and inelastic fabric habit. for every of those difficulties the underlying mathematical version is mentioned, the basic analytical homes are defined, and the proposed numerical approach is conscientiously analyzed. The practicality of the algorithms is illustrated through brief implementations.
