The Case for Code Verification

The Case for Code Verification

Whilst in mechanics, for instance, structural or fluid mechanics, the governing equations can generally be written down, they are often in such a form, for example Partial Differential Equations (PDE), that closed-form solutions are only possible for simple configurations. As an undergraduate, my mathematics lecturer expressed this idea by putting a dot on an otherwise clean blackboard and then stating that if the full blackboard represented the space of known PDEs then his dot represented those that have closed-form solutions. This does not mean that exact solutions for the remaining PDEs do not exist but, simply, that they are intractable through standard mathematical manipulation.
