In this seminar we address numerical methods for hyperbolic partial differential equations. We discuss important examples of governing equations, with a special focus on the shallow water equations (tsunamis). In this context typical challenges are tackled: Fundamentals of the shallow water equations and numerical treatment, (h-)adaptivity, (shared- and distributed-memory) parallelization, storage and visualization of solution fields, Riemann solvers, non-linearities, limiters, high-order discretization, time stepping schemes, etc. Besides numerical theory we expect the students to apply and implement the learned concepts in the form of a small project, which requires extensive use of the learned theory.
