Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations

Course Description

A presentation of the fundamentals of modern numerical techniques for a wide range of linear and nonlinear elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic partial differential equations and integral equations central to a wide variety of applications in science, engineering, and other fields. Topics include: Mathematical Formulations; Finite Difference and Finite Volume Discretizations; Finite Element Discretizations; Boundary Element Discretizations; Direct and Iterative Solution Methods.
This course was also taught as part of theSingapore-MIT Alliance(SMA) programme as course number SMA 5212 (Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations)

Lecture Notes

Lecture notes were made available before each class session. Lecture slides were presented during the session. The class was taught concurrently to audiences at both MIT and the National University of Singapore, using audio and video links between the two classrooms, as part of the Singapore-MIT Alliance.
