Numerical Solution of Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations
- Department of Technical Mathematics
Course covers the overview of clasical numerical methods for the solution of evolution problems for ODE’s and PDE’s. Students get familiar with discretization errors, stability of schemes and convergence of solution. Emphasis is put on a practical use of numerical methods (choice of method, discretization, ...).
