Numerical Solutions of Differential Equations

Differential equations are used to model many processes in science and engineering, and these equations are not necessarily directly solvable. However, using numerical methods we can find approximate solutions.

The course gives you knowledge of problem classes, basic mathematical and numerical concepts and properties, modern numerical methods, and software for solution of engineering and scientific problems formulated as differential equations.

This course is given jointly with KTH, and you can find more information about the schedule, course literature etc. on KTH's pages - see links below.

  • Course structure

    The course consists of three elements; theory, project and practical exercises.

    Teaching format

    The education consists of lectures, practical exercises and project with presentation.


    The course is assessed through written and/or oral examination, and written and oral presentation of the project. For information on how to register for exams at KTH, see
