Preliminary session

Wednesday, July 2, 2014, 12:30pm in room 02.07.023

Seminar Topics

The seminar takes a look at fundamental approaches and models frequently encountered in applications from computational science and engineering. Seminar topics and discussions cover models for the solved problems, as well as mathematical, algorithmic, and implementational aspects of approaches to their solution.

Possible topics of presentations are:

  1. Tsunami simulations
  2. Molecular Dynamics
  3. Graph-partitioning algorithms
  4. Plasma physics
  5. SPH simulations in astrophysics
  6. The fast multipole method
  7. Traffic simulations
  8. Model order reduction
  9. Algebraic multigrid
  10. Classification
  11. Lattice-Boltzmann simulations
  12. Uncertainty quantification
  13. Preconditioners for linear systems


Seminar Outline

Each student will give one presentation (approx. 30 minutes) in the seminar. In addition to her or his talk, each student will have to prepare a short paper of around 5 pages (double-column). The final grade will depend on both, presentation and paper.


  • deadline for presentation: Mon, Dec 1, 2014, 12am
  • deadline for final paper: Mon, Dec 8, 2014, 12am


The seminar talks will be given in presumably 3-4 block sessions on the dates given in the table below.

The final presentation schedule will be given here once the list of participants and topics are fixed.
