The paper has been presented at the 12th International Conference on Applications of Computer Algebra, Varna, Bulgaria, June, 2006A MATHEMATICA package for finding Lie symmetries of partial differential equations is presented. The package is designed to create and solve the associated determining system of equations, the full set of solutions of which generates the widest permissible local Lie group of point symmetry transformations. Examples illustrating the functionality of the package's tools...

We consider a domain decomposition method for some unsteady heat conduction problem in composite structures. This linear model problem is obtained by homogenization of thin layers of fibres embedded into some standard material. For ease of presentation we consider the case of two space dimensions only. The set of finite element equations obtained by the backward Euler scheme is parallelized in a problem-oriented fashion by some noniterative overlapping domain splitting method, eventually enhanced...

The author obtains an estimate for the spatial gradient of solutions of the heat equation, subject to a homogeneous Neumann boundary condition, in terms of the gradient of the initial data. The proof is accomplished via the maximum principle; the main assumption is that the sufficiently smooth boundary be convex.

The Fourier problem on planar domains with time variable boundary is considered using integral equations. A simple numerical method for the integral equation is described and the convergence of the method is proved. It is shown how to approximate the solution of the Fourier problem and how to estimate the error. A numerical example is given.

Finite element methods with piecewise polynomial spaces in space for solving the nonstationary heat equation, as a model for parabolic equations are considered. The discretization in time is performed using the Crank-Nicolson method. A new a priori estimate is proved. Thanks to this new a priori estimate, a new error estimate in the discrete norm of ${\mathcal{W}}^{1,\infty}\left({\mathcal{L}}^{2}\right)$ is proved. An ${\mathcal{L}}^{\infty}\left({\mathscr{H}}^{1}\right)$-error estimate is also shown. These error estimates are useful since they allow us to get second order time accurate approximations...
