MATH 478 Computational Methods in Applied Mathematics (3 credits)

Offered by: Mathematics and Statistics (Faculty of Science)

Overview

Mathematics & Statistics (Sci) : Solution to initial value problems: Linear, Nonlinear Finite Difference Methods: accuracy and stability, Lax equivalence theorem, CFL and von Neumann conditions, Fourier analysis: diffusion, dissipation, dispersion, and spectral methods. Solution of large sparse linear systems: iterative methods, preconditioning, incomplete LU, multigrid, Krylov subspaces, conjugate gradient method. Applications to, e.g., weighted least squares, duality, constrained minimization, calculus of variation, inverse problems, regularization, level set methods, Navier-Stokes equations
