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 students in computer science, mathematics, or some field of science or engineering who already have a certain background in the numerical treatment of (partial) differential equations.
