Introduction to numerical modelling

MSE-369

Lecturer(s) :

Drezet Jean-Marie

Language:

English

Summary

This course aims to give a broad introduction to the basic numerical methods used to model physical phenomenon such as diffusion, heat transport, elasticity and the wave equation, and incompressible fluid dynamics. Computational examples will be given within the python framework.

Content

Recap on the ordinary differential equations (ODE) initial value problem

The ODE boundary value problem

Partial differential equations (PDE)

Keywords

Numerical methods, Ordinary Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations, Finite difference methods, Finite element methods

Learning Prerequisites
