- Summer 13
- Prof. Dr. Michael Bader
- Time and Place
- Tuesday 10-12, lecture room MI 02.07.023
First Lecture: Apr 16
- Computational Science and Engineering, 2nd semester
- Wolfgang Eckhardt Philipp Neumann
Monday 10-12, lecture room MI 02.07.023,
First Tutorial: April 22
- written exam
- Semesterwochenstunden / ECTS Credits
- 2V + 2Ü / 5 Credits
- Scientific Computing II
- lecture on Tuesday, July 2, will move to Monday, July 1, 12.00-13.30 (room MI 02.07.023): for organizational reasons, the lectures Numerical Programming II and Scientific Computing will be swapped on these two days
- due to the student assembly, the lecture on Tuesday, May 14, is skipped
- due to a short holiday (Whit Monday/Pentecost), lecture and tutorial on May 20/21 will be skipped
- on Mon 27, we will restart with a lecture (which replaces the usual tutorial)
- written exam
- Date: Wed, 24 July 2013
- Time: 8:30 - 10:00
Please make sure to be in the lecture hall by 8:15, as the exam will start precisely at 8.30.
- Place: MW 0350 (in the engineering department!)
- Duration: 90 min.
- auxiliary material allowed:
- one hand-written sheet of paper (Din A4), written on both sides
- You are not allowed to use any other tools / devices (e.g. electronic dictionaries)
Please make sure that you are registered for the exam via TUMOnline!
Old exams are available on the websites of the last years (note that this year, the extent of the lecture was extended!):
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
- 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.
