Possible Exam Questions

Generated by the students during the lectures:

The questions are a good collection for preparing for the exam. However, exam questions are not restricted to this collection, of course.


This course provides an overview of scientific computing, i. e. of the different tasks to be tackled on the way towards powerful numerical simulations. The entire "pipeline" of simulation is discussed:

The course is conceived as an introduction to the thriving field of numerical simulation for computer scientists, mathematicians, engineers, or natural scientists without an already strong background in numerical methods.
