The finite element method has emerged as a universal method for the solution of differential equations. Much of the success of the finite element method can be attributed to its generality and elegance, allowing a wide range of differential equations from all areas of science to be analyzed and solved within a common framework. Another contributing factor to the success of the finite element method is the flexibility of formulation, allowing the properties of the discretization to be controlled by the choice of approximating finite element spaces.
