Course description and aim
The course is devoted to the introduction of advanced numerical methods in Scientific Computing for large scale applications. The aim of the course is to give the students an introduction to the construction principles of advanced numerical methods so that they will be able to understand, use, and develop efficient algorithms for large scale problems.
The course will cover parts of the following texts:
The book "Numerical Linear Algebra", by Lloyd N. Trefethen and David Bau. ISBN: 0-89871-361-7.
- The book "Multigrid", by Ulrich Trottenberg, Cornelis Oosterlee, and Anton Schuller. ISBN: 0-12-701070-X.
- "Lecture Notes: Advanced Numerical Methods" by Michael Hanke. Available at the KTH Mathematics Studentexpedition by the time the course starts.
- sections 1, 2.1-2.6, 2.8.2, 3.1-3.3, 5.3.1-5.3.5 in "Multigrid", by Trottenberg et al.;
- chapters 7, 8, 10, 24-29, 32, 33, 35, 36, 38-40 in "Numerical Linear Algebra", by Trefethen and Bau;
- pages 9-67 in the lecture notes on advanced numerical methods by Michael Hanke. You may also want to read section 3.3 and 3.4 in Hanke's text on the multigrid method.
