From 2005, this course will be given in every winter term
The course is conducted in English.
The "Scientific Computing Lab" serves as an introduction to several topics
within the discipline of "Scientific Computing". This includes mathematical
modelling, discretization of the models, numerical schemes to solve the
discretized problem, and the implementation of these numerical methods.
Questions of visualization are touched, as well.
The aim of the course is:
- to give an overview over possible applications and problems in scientific
- to learn and exercise several basic methods and techniques in
- to motivate the necessity and importance of combining expertise from
all disciplines involved - mathematics, computer science, engineering,
the natural sciences, etc.
The application fields covered by the course are, for example, population
modelling, structural analysis, heat transport, simple fluid dynamics,
and several others.
