Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course deals with basic methods of scientific computing, leaning towards applications in theoretical physics. Scientific Computing is an interdisciplinary field of study, situated between numerical analysis, computer science and natural science. Nowadays, numerical simulations are used to conduct expensive or practically impossible experiments in complex mathematical models of a given physical system. The insights obtained by the simulations may, in turn, suggest new directions for theory.
In the course of the lecture, the following topics will be discussed using simple numerical algorithms:Linear Systems of Equations; Interpolation; Numerical Differentiation; Numerical Integration; Solution of Nonlinear Equations; Fitting; Eigenvalueproblems; Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations. In the concomitant exercises these algorithms will be applied to examples, implemented and visualized.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written exam, lecture notes are not allowed. Time of examination roughly 1 h.
1st examination date: June 29th, 09:15-11:05, Christian Doppler lecture hall (Strudelhofgasse 4, 3. Stock). Registration for the examination in U:SPACE is required.
