# Contents

This course provides a deeper knowledge in two important fields of scientific computing:

- iterative solution of large sparse systems of linear equations:
- relaxation methods
- multigrid methods
- steepest descent
- conjugate gradient methods

- molecular dynamics simulations
- the physical model
- the mathematical model
- approximations and discretization
- implementational aspects
- parallelisation
- examples of nanofluidic simulations

The course is conceived for computer scientists, mathematicians, engineers, or natural scientists with already a background in the numerical treatment of (partial) differential equations.

# Lecture Notes and Material

## Further Material

Annotated slides for the lecture in summer 2010 /(given by Dr. Tobias Weinzierl) are available from the TeleTeachingTool Lecture Archive
