Seminar - Solving Large Systems of Linear Equations (WS 2005/2006)

Contact person:
Dr. Michael Bader

Seminar in "Computational Science and Engineering (Master's Program)"

Time and Place:
preliminary session on Wednesday, July, 20th, 15:00, in room 02.07.023.

Seminar Outline:

The seminar will be roughly organized like a scientific conference. That means, it will start with a call for papers - each student has to hand in a paper on his topic. After that will be a peer review - papers will be reviewed by the other students. Respective corrections and suggestions will be included into the final versions of the paper. The seminar will finish with several sessions, where the talks about the papers will be given.

See the seminar handout for more information and deadlines.



The seminar's topic will be the efficient solution of large, sparse systems of linear equations. See the preliminary schedule below for a list of topics.
