This course is run by MIGSAA. It is open to everyone, including non-MIGSAA students, as an SMSTC supplementary module.
ALL FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THIS COURSE WILL BE POSTED AT http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/~hg94/na18.
Format: 10 lectures of 2 hours each, additional student lectures.
A similar course "What is ... PDEs?" currently runs informally at HW. The format is highly interactive, where students and upcoming seminar talks determine the content of the lectures.
Credits: 15 for students giving a lecture, less for participation or active contribution to tutorials
Aim: This course aims to give an introduction to standard techniques in the numerical analysis of partial differential equations, with a focus on the underlying analysis.
Prerequisites: a previous course in either PDE or their numerical analysis
We cover some essential basic and advanced topics in the numerical analysis of PDEs. After the course the student should know key ideas in a broad range of topics, as they are relevant in their research or in relevant numerical analysis talks.
In particular, we expect to touch on the following topics:
Interested students will give a 60-minute lecture on a topic of their choice, ideally a topic related to their research interests.
