This course provides a deeper knowledge in two important fields of scientific computing:
- solution of large sparse systems of linear equations:
- Gaussian elemination
- relaxation methods
- multigrid methods
- steepest descent
- conjugate gradient methods
- molecular dynamics simulations
- the physical model
- the mathematical model
- approximations and discretization
- implementational aspects
- 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.
