Numerical Analysis (AM3.1) and Partial Differential Equations (AM3.4)
We will take a practical look at developing techniques for solving evolution-type PDEs. The model equations will be linear and nonlinear waves, and we will deal with issues such as the well-posedness of the numerical formulation, stability, convergence and error estimates, boundary conditions. We will also introduce finite volume and high-resolution schemes for handling the formation of shocks in nonlinear equations.
