The contents of this thesis are a detailed study of the implementation of Finite Element method for solving linear and non-linear elliptic partial differential equations. It commences with a description and classification of partial differential equations, the related matrix and eigenvalue theory and the related matrix methods to solve the linear and non-linear systems of equations. In Chapter Three, we discuss the development of the, finite element method and its application with a full description of an orderly step-by-step process. In Chapter Four, we discuss the implementation of developing an efficient easy-to-use finite element program for the general two-dimensional problem along with the capability of handling problems for different domains and boundary conditions and with a fully automated mesh generation and refinement technique along with a description of generalised pre- and post-processors for the Finite Element Method.
