Conservation Methods for Hyperbolic Differential Equations
Autumn - irregular
Objectives and Content
The course gives an introduction to hyperbolic conservation laws and to numerical methods for solving the equations. In the analytic part of the course one considers both for scalar equations and for a system of equations, topics as waves, entropy conditions and the solution of the Riemann problem. In the numerical part of the course one discusses topics as conservation, monotony, stability and accuracy of methods used.
The course is suitable for Master's- and Ph.D students
