In this paper, we develop Galerkin approximations for determining the stability of delay differential equations (DDEs) with time periodic coefficients and time periodic delays. Using a transformation, we convert the DDE into a partial differential equation (PDE) along with a boundary condition (BC). The PDE and BC we obtain have time periodic coefficients. The PDE is discretized into a system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) using the Galerkin method with Legendre polynomials as the basis functions. The BC is imposed using the tau method. The resulting ODEs are time periodic in nature; thus, we resort to Floquet theory to determine the stability of the ODEs. We show through several numerical examples that the stability charts obtained from the Galerkin method agree closely with those obtained from direct numerical simulations.
