MATH-452 / 5 credits

Teacher: Garegnani Giacomo

Language: English


Summary

In this course we will introduce and study numerical integrators for multi-scale (or stiff) differential equations and dynamical systems with special geometric structures (symplecticity, reversibility, first integrals, etc.). These numerical methods are important for many applications.

Content

Keywords

stiff differential equations, multiscale problems, Hamiltonian systems, geometric numerical integration

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Advanced Analysis, Linear Algebra, Numerical Analysis

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Identify stiff and Hamiltonian differential equations
  • Analyze geometric and stability properties of differential equations
  • Choose an appropriate method for the solution of stiff or Hamiltonian differential equations
  • Analyze geometric and stability properties of numerical methods
  • Implement numerical methods for solving stiff or Hamiltonian differential equations
