6.336 Introduction to Numerical Simulation


Class Info

Introduction to computational techniques for the simulation of a large variety of engineering and physical systems. Applications are drawn from aerospace, mechanical, electrical, chemical engineering, biology, and materials science. Topics include mathematical formulations (techniques for automatic assembly of mathematical problems from physics' principles); sparse, direct and iterative solution techniques for linear systems; Newton and Homotopy methods for nonlinear problems; discretization methods for ordinary, time-periodic and partial differential equations; accelerated methods for integral equations; techniques for automatic generation of compact dynamical system models and model order reduction.

This class has 18.03, and 18.06 as prerequisites.

6.336 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by L. Daniel and J. K. White.

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.
