Abstract:

Principles for the selection of a finite element method for a particular problem are discussed. These principles are stated in terms of the notion of approximability, optimality, and stability. Several examples are discussed in detail as illustrations. Conclusions regarding the selection of finite element methods are summarized in the final section of the paper.
