Description Theory and practical methods for numerical solution of partial differential equations. Finite difference methods for elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic equations, stability, accuracy and convergence, von Neumann analysis and CFL conditions. Finite volume methods for hyperbolic conservation laws, finite element methods for elliptic and parabolic equations, discontinuous Galerkin methods for conservation laws. Other topics include applications of the techniques to a range of problems.
