Objectives Get knowledge of concepts and acquirement of techniques for the continuous numerical treatment of relevant mathematical problems, typically appearing with physical and technical problems and of numerical methods for solving systems of optimization problems.
  • Introduction: from the model to the computer simulation, examples, typical problems for Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) and their technical background
  • Variation formulation of Boundary Value Problems (BVP) and their discretization by means of the Finite Element Method (FEM)
  • Time-dependent problems (Initial Boundary Value Problems (IBVP))

Methods for solving systems of linear and nonlinear algebraic equations

  • Optimization techniques (also in connection with “PDE-constrained” optimization problems)
Criteria for evaluation The course contains an oral examination. The final score consists of the mark of the individual exercises (50 %) and of the mark of the oral exam (50 %). You pass the course when you get at least the mark “4” in each part. Please take the 4 exercises with you when you take the oral examination.
Language German
