Weak Galerkin finite element method is a new and efficient numerical method for solving PDEs which was first proposed by Junping Wang and Xiu Ye in 2011. The main idea of WG method is to introduce weak differential operators and apply them to the corresponding variational formulations to solve PDEs. In this talk, I will focus on the WG methods for biharmonic equations, maxwell equations and div-curl equations.
