Due to the delay of the presentations of worksheet 6, also the lecture on the results will be postponed to next week, Wednesday 11th, 9:30.


basics in linear algebra and differential calculus


The lab course gives an application oriented introduction to the following topics:

  • explicit and implicit time stepping methods for ordinary differential equations
  • numerical methods for stationary and instationary partial differential equations
  • solvers for large, sparse systems of linear equations
  • adaptivity and adaptively refined discretisation grids
  • applications from fluid dynamics and heat transfer
