Variational methods applied to modelling

Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :



This course include practical sessions.

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.

Recommended prerequisite

notions of distribution theory, linear algebra, integral calculus, some notions of programming in some high level language, basic numerical analysis, as numerical integration of differential equations, basic notions on Hilbert spaces, usual partial differential operators (gradient, divergence, laplacian…)
