Long Title: DISCONTINUOUS GALERKIN METHODS FOR SOLVING ENGINEERING PROBLEMS
Department: Computational & Applied Math
Grade Mode: Standard Letter
Course Type: Lecture
Credit Hours: 3
Restrictions:
Must be enrolled in one of the following Level(s):
Graduate
Description: The course will present the theory and implementation of discontinuous Galerkin methods for partial differential equations common in engineering applications. Two main classes of problems are covered: steady-state and time-dependent elliptic/parabolic and hyperbolic equations. These include (but are not limited to) the Poisson and heat equations, linear wave equations, and nonlinear conservation laws. Recommended Prerequisite(s): CAAM 453 or CAAM 553
