Performance Analysis of Nonlinearly Controlled Motion Systems

In this thesis, we investige the applicability of the certain numerical methods for the solution of certain systems of partial differential equations. Numerical methods for this purpose are studied, in particular the finite element method. These systems arise from the study of extending performance analysis to general convergent nonlinear systems. It is argued that, for simplex meshes, the finite element method is not applicable to the systems. Further, it is argued that the finite element method should not be pursued as an alternative to the solution of these systems, as far better alternatives have recently been developed.
