6.336 Introduction to Numerical Simulation

Class Info

Introduction to computational techniques for modeling and simulation of a variety of large and complex engineering, science, and socio-economical systems. Prepares students for practical use and development of computational engineering in their own research and future work. Topics include mathematical formulations (e.g., automatic assembly of constitutive and conservation principles); linear system solvers (sparse and iterative); nonlinear solvers (Newton and homotopy); ordinary, time-periodic and partial differential equation solvers; and model order reduction. Students develop their own models and simulators for self-proposed applications, with an emphasis on creativity, teamwork, and communication. Prior basic linear algebra and programming (e.g., MATLAB or Python) helpful.

This class has 18.03, and 18.06 as prerequisites.

6.336 will be offered this semester (Fall 2018). It is instructed by L. Daniel.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 32-155.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
