The course will teach you modern methods of computation, especially the finite element method to solve differential equations, ability to analyse the efficiency/accuracy of computations, mathematical knowledge of basic partial differential equations in applications for efficient/reliable computer calculations.
The course covers FEM-formulation of linear and non-linear partial differential equations. Element typesand their implementation. Grid generation. Adaption. Error control. Efficient solution algorithms (e.g. by amultigrid method).
Applications to stationary and transient diffusion processes, elasticity, convection-diffusion, Navier-Stokesequation, quantum mechanics etc.
The course consists of two elements; theory and project.
The education consists of lectures and practical exercises.
The course is assessed through written examination. For information on how to register for exams at KTH, see:
