About the Course
The course treats the numerical solution of differential
equations. It emphasizes partial differential equations (PDE)
solved by finite difference methods and finite volume schemes.
Well-posedness, stability and other properties of schemes for
hyperbolic systems of equations are a major concern, as well
as elliptic and parabolic equations.
The choice of boundary conditions has an impact on stability
and well-posedness, and will be discussed.
The goal of the course is to give students
The theoretical part introduces model equations and Fourier - Continuous
as well as Discrete - techniques for the analysis of equations and schemes.
The theory is complemented by a set of homework, study problems, and computer
labs on the formulation, analysis, and solution of
model problems from engineering science.
The students are expected to have a solid background of calculus,
differential equations, and linear algebra; a basic course in
numerical analysis is required, as is familiarity with the NADA
computer environment and MATLAB.
- Understanding of the mathematical concepts, properties
and tools for analyzing differential equations and their discretizations, and
ability to carry out the manipulations and calculations required.
- Working knowledge and experience of implementing FD
schemes with various boundary conditions
- Experience of carrying out a complete solution of a computational
problem - formulation, analysis, method choice, implementation, validation,
and interpretation and presentation of results.
Office hours: by agreement.

To pass the student must
For the problem sets the students are encouraged to work
in groups of two, each group needs only to hand in one report, but the
oral account is given individually. The project is also done in groups
of two. All group members must be present at the presentation.
The grade on the course will be based on the written examination, the
homework solutions and the project. You do not need to register for the exam.
- Pass a written examination. (2 cred)
The exam will consist of a selection of the distributed examination questions.
- Solve the homework problems. (2 cred).
Written reports of good quality must be handed in on given
deadlines. You can find a latex file with a skeleton for a
report in the course archive.
Students will be asked to give a short oral presentation classroom-style
of (parts of) the solutions.
- Complete a project (1 cred) including classroom presentation.
The schedule is available from KTH home page Time Edit "Schemagenerator".
Lecture content plans will appear here shortly,

Registration and "course join" in RES
You must register with your Sektions Kansli to take this course. Please do
so as soon as possible!. PhD students from other schools,
please contact the course responsible ASAP.
You must also, as soon as you have decided to
complete the course, register for participation in the CSC RES
system. Homework, examination grades, etc., will be recorded and available
to students ONLY in this way, and with some delay, in the web-based
system "Mina Sidor".
In the CSC unix system, upon login , do
res checkin ndiff2-07
course join ndiff2-07
When you have finished the course, exit the registration by
course leave ndiff2-07
A course evaluation will be conducted via www from this home page, details
to appear here shortly.
The course archive
/info/ndiff2-07 will probably stay empty,
the stuff you need will be downloadable from this home page.
