16.930 Advanced Topics in Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations


Class Info

Covers advanced topics in numerical methods for the discretization, solution, and control of problems governed by partial differential equations. Topics include the application of the finite element method to systems of equations with emphasis on equations governing compressible, viscous flows; grid generation; optimal control of PDE-constrained systems; a posteriori error estimation and adaptivity; reduced basis approximations and reduced-order modeling. Computer assignments require programming.

This class has 16.920 as a prerequisite.

16.930 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by N-C. Nguyen and J. Peraire.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays in 33-422.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
