CSC446H1: Computational Methods for Partial Differential Equations

Hours: 
24L/12T

Finite Difference and Finite Element methods for boundary value problems including 2-point boundary value problems and 2-dimensional problems. Convergence of methods. Efficiency of the solution of linear systems. Finite difference methods for initial value problems. Consistency, stability and convergence. Method of lines. Special topics of interest among domain decomposition, multigrid, FFT solvers. Ordinarily offered in years alternating with CSC466H1.
