UE Variational methods applied to modelling

Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :


The aim of this course is to get deep knowledge of PDE modelling and their numerical resolution, in particular using variational methods such as the Finite Elements method.

Course contents:

  • Introduction to modelling with examples.
  • Boundary problem in 1D, variational formulation, Sobolev spaces.
  • Stationary problem, elliptic equations.
  • Finite element method: algorithm, errors…
  • Evolution models, parabolic equations, splitting methods
  • Extensions and applications, FreeFEM++

This course include practical sessions.

This is a two parts course:

  1. Course mutualized with Ensimag 2A 4MMMVAM (head: Emmanuel Maitre)
  2. MSIAM specific course (in-depth and practical session) (head: Clément Jourdana)
