Solving three-dimensional (3D) Laplace equations by successive over-relaxation method

  Motivated by the assertion that all physical systems exist in three space dimensions, and that representation in one or two space dimensions entails a large degree of approximations. The main objective of this paper is to extend the successive over-relaxation (SOR) method which is one of the widely used numerical methods in solving the Laplace equation, the most often encountered of the Elliptic partial...

Penalty function methods using matrix laboratory (MATLAB)

  The purpose of the study was to investigate how effectively the penalty function methods are able to solve constrained optimization problems. The approach in these methods is to transform the constrained optimization problem into an equivalent unconstrained problem and solved using one of the algorithms for unconstrained optimization problems. Algorithms and matrix laboratory (MATLAB) codes are...
