36 Trefftz Method Walter Ritz (1878–1909) Erich Trefftz ( ) Trefftz, E. (1926), Ein Gegenstück zum Ritzschen verfahren (A counterpart to Ritz method), in Verh d.2. Intern Kongr f Techn Mech (Proc. 2nd Int. Congress Applied Mechanics), edited, pp , Zurich. Ritzs idea was to use variational method and trial functions to minimize a functional, in order to find approximate solutions of boundary value problems. Typically, trial functions are polynomials or elementary functions. Trefftzs contribution was to use the general solutions of the partial differential equation as trial functions.
