Description: Theory and practical methods for numerical solution of partial differential equations. Finite volume methods for hyperbolic conservation laws, finite element methods for elliptic and parabolic equations, discontinuous Galerkin methods for first and second order systems of conservation laws. Other topics include efficient implementation, numerical linear algebra solvers such as the multigrid method, structured and unstructured mesh generation, and applications of the techniques to a range of equations.
