Section 1060 of the code requires that in an "applicable asset acquisition," the purchaser's basis in the acquired assets and the seller's consideration with respect to the acquisition must be allocated among the assets pursuant to the "residual method." (7) An applicable asset acquisition (AAA) is defined as any transfer that involves a transfer of assets, which constitute a trade or business, and with respect to that, the purchaser's basis in such assets is determined wholly by reference to the consideration paid for such assets.
Using the Galerkin weighted residual method, he finds the solution of the eigen value problem, derives stability criteria for stationary and oscillating convection, and plots graphs to study the effects of various parameters on stationary and oscillating convection.
This paper introduces the minimum residual method and the sum of weight coefficients method and puts forward a comprehensive classification method.
Motivated by the works of Odejide and Binuyo  where the weighted residual method was applied to the one-dimensional telegraph equation, in this work, a new and efficient collocation method based on the Laplace transform is proposed to approximate the solution of (1).

Given the complexity of our junction structure and the concomitant requirement for hybrid field expressions, we have opted to minimize [[DELTA].sub.sum] = [[DELTA].sub.A] + [[eta].sup.2.sub.0][[DELTA].sub.B] + [[DELTA].sub.C] (where [[eta].sub.0] is the free-space impedance) by employing the Least Squares Boundary Residual Method (LSBRM) because this numerical technique has been found by others to be rigorous:
