Solving systems of nonlinear equations by the parametric approach with an arbitrary initial point
(in Russian), pp. 11-22

We propose a number of algorithms for solving systems of nonlinear equations, when a good approximation to solution is unknown, and the Newton method is not efficient. These methods are based on the choice of weights for an auxiliary function and on the descent in the space of weights. The convergence depends on relations between the measures of regions of attraction of the solutions. In order to improve the performance, we consider perturbation methods.
Key words:
nonlinear equations, arbitrary initial point, random weights.

Finite element modelling for a beam on the Winckler type basis with variable rigidity
(in English), pp. 23-30

We study constructing a beam on the Winckler basis that is under the influence of a cross-force. This force rotates around the axis of the beam. The rigidity of this basis depends on the time variable. A general mathematical model is deduced for this type of constructions. Variational formulations of the boundary value problems in question are obtained. The finite element method is used to determine the stresses of a beam. We discuss the corresponding eigenvalue problems in order to apply the method of normal shapes. Finally, a numerical result with practical application is presented.
Key words:

On the p-version of the finite element method for the boundary value problem with singularity
(in English), pp. 31-42

The one-dimensional first-type boundary value problem for the second order differential equation with strong singularity of a solution caused by coordinated degeneration of input data at the origin is considered. For this problem we define the solution as -generalized one. It has been proved that solution belongs to the weighted Sobolev space under proper assumptions for coefficients and the right-hand side of the differential equation. The scheme of the finite element method is constructed on a fixed mesh using polynomials of an arbitrary degree p (the p-version of the finite element method). The finite element space contains singular polynomials. Using the regularity of -generalized solution, the estimate for the rate of convergence of the second order with respect to the degree p of polynomials is proved in the norm of the weighted Sobolev space.

Generalization of the Runge-Kutta methods and their application to integration of initial-boundary value problems of mathematical physics
(in Russian), pp. 57-76

An idea is proposed and tested to generalize the Runge-Kutta methods to a bidimensional case for the approximate integration of the initial-boundary value problems corresponding to the partial differential equations. It is shown that some classical finite difference schemes of integration of the equation of transport and non-stationary one-dimensional heat conductivity can be obtained as consequence of such generalization. New schemes of high orders of accuracy for various problems of mathematical physics are obtained. Stability of these schemes is proved, and results of calculations for problems with large gradients of the solution are presented. On concrete examples it is shown that classical schemes of low orders of accuracy unsatisfactorily describe solutions of such problems, and the schemes of high orders constructed by means of the generalized Runge-Kutta methods presented, give a good approximation to exact solutions.

On this class the error of approximation by the splines constructed is exactly calculated.

General results for lumped mass approximation of isoparametric eigenvalue problem on triangular meshes
(in English),
pp. 189-205

This paper deals with a FE-numerical quadrature method giving a diagonalization of the mass matrix (lumped mass matrix). The method is applied for a class of second order selfadjoint elliptic operators defined on a bounded domain in the plane. The isoparametric finite element transformations and triangular Lagrange finite elements are used.

The paper concludes with the investigation started by the authors in \cite{and1,and2} for the isoparametric variant of the lumped mass modification for second order planar eigenvalue problems. Thus the relationship between the possible quadrature formulas and the precision of the method is proved. The effect of these numerical integrations on the error in eigenvalues and eigenfunctions is estimated. At the end of the paper, the numerical results confirming the theory are presented.
 Key words: eigenvalue problem, isoparametric FEM, lumped mass, numerical integration.
