Objectives and Content

The course looks at the whole process within computational science from the formulation of a physical model, to estimation of mathematical properties of the model and to the choice of numerical methods to be used and finally to simulation of the model in a numerical experiment. The course gives insight into programming, graphical plotting of results and experience with advanced computers. The course includes compulsary exercises with emphasis on practical aspects of the methods.

Learning Outcomes

After completed course, the students are expected to be able to:

  • Master the basic techniques of mathematical modeling
  • Describe the process of implementing a mathematical model
  • Use some numerical methods in practice
  • Present the investigation results in reports and posters
