DN2221, Applied Numerical Methods, part 1, 6 hp

Welcome to the course, autumn 2013!

Observe that the information on this course home page is

also valid for the courses SF2520 (7.5hp) and SF1536 (9hp)

ONE LAST EXAM in DN2221 will be given August 20 (Wednesday), 14-19 in Q15.
Those students in SF2520 who have this exam left can also take part. From
autumn-2014 the exam will be changed to cover both Diff.Eqn's and Num.Algebra.
Sign up for the exam for open July 1st - August 10

SF2520, 7.5hp, will be changed autumn 2014 to ONE course containing
Numerical methods for Differential Equations AND Numerical Algebra.
The labs will be modified accordingly. For more info, see SF2520.

SF1536 consists of DN2221 plus extra material designed exclusevely for students
in the KTH-program Simulation technique and Visualization.

DN2221 can be combined with DN2222 (3hp) giving in total 9hp.

Teacher of the course is Ass Prof Lennart Edsberg, Numerical Analysis group,
e-mail edsberg@csc.kth.se
Assistant helping with labs and correcting reports is PhD-student Ashraful Kadir, NA-group,
e-mail smakadir@kth.se

The address to the NA-group is Lindstedtsvaegen 13.
Observe that the NA-group ia a part of the Department of Mathematics, KTH.

Material for the course:
1) Textbook, L.Edsberg "Introduction to computation and modeling for Differential equations", Wiley's 2008.
Available at KTH's bookstore, about 600 SEK, see also this link
2) Some description of Matlab e.g. MATLAB 7 i korthet eller the "Dundee Matlab report"
The Matlab-description can be bought at Mathematics student office Lindstedtsvägen 25 , price SEK 40.
You can also google at Matlab, Dundee and download it yourself.

Unless you already have an account number for access to Nada's unix system, contact the service center at
the CSC-school, floor 4, Osquars Backe 2. You can also use your laptop with MATLAB installed.
At the service center you can also get a keycard for access to Nada's computer rooms.
A keycard will be given to those who have an account number.

Matlab and Comsol Multiphysics can be downloaded to your own computer if you are KTH student, see ProgDist

Labs are to be done in groups of 2 students. Each lab is examined by a written report.

The labs are found in the textbook, appendix C, but see also this home page
further down for modifications and printing errors.

Read about the requirements for the lab reports here
Observe that MATLAB-program must always be attached to the lab report!!!
IMPORTANT! The lab reports must have a cover page.
This cover page you find here.
The report with the cover page on front shall be submitted to the student office of Mathematics,
Lindstedtsvagen 25, Mon-Fri 12-15.

Laboration 1, deadline Sept 19th, also found here
FAQ lab1:
1) Can we use ode23 or ode45 in lab 1? Answer: no, use expm(A*t)
2) Shall we compute the eigenvalues in 2a) analytically?
Answer: if you want, easier is to use the eig-function in MATLAB.
3) Newton's method converges to only one (or two) of the critical points, why?
Answer: you have probably given the jacobian incorrectly.

Laboration 2, deadline Oct 6th
Laboration 3, deadline Oct 15th
Observe the misprint in the book: sin(pi*(z-a)/(z-b)) should be sin(pi*(z-a)/(b-a))

Laboration 4, deadline Dec 5th (OBS! changed date!)
Laboration 5, deadline Nov 18th (OBS! changed date!)
Laboration 6, deadline Jan 13th (OBS! changed date!

The final project will be given out in the beginning of November.
The project is done in groups of 2-5 students. The results of the project are presented orally at one of the seminars in december.
The presentation is done with OH's or with computer, e.g. Power point. At least one day before the presentation, copies of the pictures of the presentation must be given to the teacher who will arrange copies for the audience. Every student in the group must make some contribution to the oral presentation.

The mark of the course DN2221 (A, B, C, D or E) is based on the results of both labs, project and written exam.
Each lab is given a maximum number of credit points: Lab 1:3.0, Lab 2:4.0, Lab 3:3.0, Lab 4:5.0, Lab 5:4.0, Lab 6:4.0
If a lab is late (see date for submission above) the score will be reduced by 1 credit. The definitely final date for submitting a lab is Jan 13th.
The project is given maximum 5 credit points.
The written exam is given maximum of 29 credit points.
To pass the course minimum 14 credits are needed from the labs (max is 23), minimum 3 credits from the project (max is 5) and 13 from the written exam (max is 29).
The following scale will be used for the final grading (labs+project+exam):
Fx:>=27, E:>=32, D:>=37, C:>=42, B:>=47, A:>=52, max 57

The final mark on SF2520 will be a weighted mark based on the result from DN2221
AND the result from part of DN2222.
The final mark on SF1536 will be the mark based on the written exam from DN2221
AND the result from take home exercises.
