Language: English (en)
Summary: This report summarizes work done as part of the Physics of String PFUG under Rice University's VIGRE program. VIGRE is a program of Vertically Integrated Grants for Research and Education in the Mathematical Sciences under the direction of the National Science Foundation. A PFUG is a group of Postdocs, Faculty, Undergraduates and Graduate students formed round the study of a common problem. This module introduces an overview of the three-dimensional network wave equation, and discusses numerical solutions and eigenvalue approximations using the finite element method. A Matlab GUI for drawing webs is presented, and eigenvalues from FEM are compared to closed form solutions to the eigenvalues of the one-dimensional network wave equation.
