Numerical Analysis 7,5 Credits
Course ContentsThe course is intended to give the student basic knowledge in numerical approximation. This concerns the approximation of functions, of solutions to ordinary and partial differential equations arising in fluid and solid mechanics, and of integrals in several dimensions. It also concerns the computer implementation of approximation schemes.
The course includes the following elements;
• Interpolation and least squares approximation in several dimensions.
• Numerical integration in several dimensions.
• Explicit and implicit finite difference time stepping methods for ordinary differential equations.
• Finite volume and finite element methods for partial differential equations.
PrerequisitesPassed courses at least 90 credits within the major subject Mechanical Engineering, 15 credits Mathematics included multivariable calculus and proof of English proficiency is required (or the equivalent).
