CSCI 6840 - Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equations

Numerical methods and analysis for linear and nonlinear PDEs with applications from heat conduction, wave propagation, solid and fluid mechanics, and other areas. Basic concepts of stability and convergence (Lax equivalence theorem, CFL condition, energy methods). Methods for parabolic problems (finite differences, method of lines, ADI, operator splitting), methods for hyperbolic problems (vector systems and characteristics, dissipation and dispersion, shocks capturing and tracking schemes), methods for elliptic problems (finite difference and finite volume methods). 

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: MATH 4800 or CSCI 4800 or permission of instructor.

When Offered: Fall term odd-numbered years.

Cross Listed: Cross listed as MATH 6840. Students cannot obtain credit for both this course and MATH 6840.
