Revision as of 17:46, 26 December 2016

Winter 16
Prof. Dr. Michael Bader
Time and Place
Wednesday, 10-12; MI HS 2 (starts Oct 26)
Computational Science and Engineering, 1st semester
Denis Jarema, Steffen Seckler
time and place:
  I group: Wednesday, 14:15-15:45, MI 02.07.023,
 II group: Monday, 14:15-15:45, MI 03.13.010
Semesterwochenstunden / ECTS Credits
4 SWS (2V+2Ü) / 5 Credits
lecture, tutorial


  • The lecture on Dec 7 will be cancelled (dies academicus)
  • Election of CSE representative: on Nov 30, from 11.30, the CSE students attending the lecture will elect their representative; the lecture will end at 11.30.
  • The lecture on Nov 2 will be cancelled due to the students assembly (Fachschaftsvollversammlung)
  • The lecture in the first week (on Oct 19) will be cancelled, as the CSE students have an alternate program on this day


The lecture will cover the following topics in scientific computing:

  • typical tasks in the simulation pipeline in scientific computing;
  • classification of mathematical models (discrete/continuous, deterministic/stochastic, etc.);
  • modelling with (systems) of ordinary differential equations (example: population models);
  • modelling with partial differential equations (example: heat equations);
  • numerical treatment of models (discretisation of ordinary and partial differential equations: introduction to Finite Volume and Finite Element Methods, grid generation, assembly of the respective large systems of linear equations);
  • analysis of the resulting numerical schemes (w.r.t. convergence, consistency, stability, efficiency);

An outlook will be given on the following topics:

  • efficient implementation of numerical algorithms, both on monoprocessors and parallel computers (architectural features, parallel programming, load distribution, parallel numerical algorithms)
  • interpretation of numerical results (visualization)

Catalogue of Exam Questions

The following catalogue contain questions collected by students of the lectures in winter 05/06 and 06/07. The catalogue is intended for preparation for the exam, only, and serves as some orientation. It's by no means meant to be a complete collection.

Last Years' Exams

Please, be aware that there are always slight changes in topics between the different years' lectures. Hence, the previous exams are not fully representative for this year's exam.
