In the infinite element method, the underlying domain is divided into infinitely many pieces. This leads to a system of infinitely many equations for infinitely many unknowns, but these can be reduced by analytical technicians to a finite system when some sort of scaling is present in the original problem. The simplest illustrative example, described carefully at the beginning of the first chapter of the book, is the solution of the Dirichlet problem in the exterior of some polygon. The exterior is subdivided into annular ...
