Learning outcomes

The overall aim of this course is to offer an opportunity to deepen the knowledge in scientific computing, in an area not covered by ordinary courses. It can be done through studies of research papers, text books, projects or by participating in a PhD-level course.

To pass, the student should be able to

  • summarise and assess the content of the chosen area in scientific computing.


The exact content is decided upon each individual course instance. The content must be on advanced level in one area within scientific computing. Here, we consider scientific computing in a broad sense; applications in Physics, Chemistry, Biology etc. are well suited under the condition that they have a computational focus.


Decided upon on each course instance.


A suitable exam is decided by examiner on each course instance. Types of examinations in the course are written tests, oral examination of a research paper or a book and/or implementations and investigations of numerical methods.
