An alternating-direction procedure for finite element collocation equations can be formulated on rectangular regions. Finite element collocation offers a great savings over finite element techniques in the matrix formation stage of the numerical process. Moreover, with an alternating-direction procedure, multidimensional problems can be solved as a series of one-dimensional problems. This greatly reduces the amount of computer time and storage required to solve large problems.
