Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, changes to courses and exams may be necessary at short notice (e.g. cancellation of on-site teaching and conversion to online exams). Register for courses/exams via u:space, find out about the current status on u:find and on the moodle learning platform. NOTE: Courses where at least one unit is on-site are currently marked "on-site" in u:find.

Further information about on-site teaching and access tests can be found at https://studieren.univie.ac.at/en/info.

The lectures of this course are scheduled to alternate weekly between classroom teaching and remote teaching (video conference with whiteboard).
Depending on the course of the Coronavirus crisis and on the number of students we might also switch to classroom teaching only or distance teaching only.
The classroom lectures will be available in Moodle in video format as well.

Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course presents several important classes of methods for the numerical solution of partial differential equations (PDE), including numerical analysis and practical implementation.
The lectures are based on and will closely follow the book «A First Course in the Numerical Analysis of Differential Equations» by Arieh Iserles (DAMTP Cambridge).

The course covers the following topics:
* Finite Difference Methods (FD) for the Poisson equation,
* Finite Element Methods (FEM) for the Poisson equation,
* Spectral methods (based on troigonometric and algebraic polynomials, including the FFT) for the Poisson equation,
* Numerical methods for a diffusion equation and the numerical analysis thereof,
* Numerical methods for certain hyperbolic equations and the numerical analysis thereof.

Practical exercises integrated into the lectures illustrate the theoretical material and facilitate learning.

Assessment and permitted materials

Oral examination (on the blackboard in the classroom environment or remotely), where the presentation of exercises contributes to the final grade.
