A symbolic algebra package, Mathematica is used to investigate the analytical integration of the mixed finite element stiffness matrices. Two mixed finite elements of the Hellinger-Reissner type. I'm TAing linear algebra next quarter, and it strikes me that I only know one example of an application I can present to my students. I'm looking for applications of elementary linear algebra outsi.

Because of this linear behavior, linear algebra can be used, which gives rise to the use of matrix calculations. Matrices are used to describe the stiffness of structures and are transposed, inverted, multiplied and added to gain solutions. Matrix calculations can be difficult but are easily handled by a computer. 3. What is in the detailed.

A symbolic algebra package, Mathematica, is used to investigate the analytical integration of the mixed finite element stiffness matrices. Two mixed finite elements of the Hellinger-Reissner type are examined in this study; the computing effort in the generation of the stiffness matrices with an analytical integration process is reduced, while accuracy is improved.
