FEM_2015 is the home page for the class ISC5935,
"Selected Topics: Computational PDE's",
a class offered by the Department of Scientific Computing
at Florida State University, Spring Session 2015.
This is intended to be a small and informal class. Students taking
this class are expected to be able to study independently. The pace,
material, and assignments for this course will be adjusted to the needs
and interests of the individual students, but a significant amount of
work will be expected.
The class is intended to survey:
the partial differential equations suitable for computation;
techniques for creating a discrete model of a partial differential
benchmark problems available for measuring accuracy and efficiency;
the software tools available to define the geometry;
interpolatory methods for defining functions based on a discrete
set of data
techniques for creating and storing a sparse system matrix
direct and iterative algorithms for the linear systems of algebraic
parallel programming opportunities during the assembly or solution;
iterative algorithms for the nonlinear systems of algebraic equations;
explicit and implicit algorithms for systems of ordinary
methods of estimating error and mesh refinement;
the graphics software and other tools for presenting and analyzing results.
