Abstract

A tutorial approach has been taken to bring out the mathematical distinctions between the variational method (Rayleigh-Ritz), Galerkin's method and the method of least squares. Examples have been presented to illustrate the strong and weak points of each of the techniques. Finally, the rates of convergence of the three techniques have been derived.
