A 1D FEM example is provided to teach the basics of using FEM to solve PDEs. The provided PDF tutorial covers:

1. The basic concepts of the finite element method (FEM).

2. How FEM is applied to solve a simple 1D partial differential equation (PDE).

3. The provided Matlab files.

The provided Matlab files may serve as a starting point for anyone writing a 1D FEM code. Extending the code to multi-dimensions follows the same principles.
