About the course
We are all familiar with weather forecasts and you have probably read about climate simulations. These are both examples where partial differential equations are used as models. The same kind of models turns up in many other areas, such as financial mathematics or biotechnology to mention a few. The methods that are used to solve these kind of problems are in focus in this course, i.e. numerical solutions to partial differential equations.
When solving these problems numerically you usually get a large (often huge) equation system to solve. How to analyse and solve systems of equations i another main topic in the course.
