6.673 Introduction to Numerical Simulation in Electrical Engineering


Class Info

Selection of a simulation model and physical approximations. Solution of nonlinear coupled PDEs in 1-D through finite difference and finite element methods, Newton's method, and variants. Finite difference and finite element methods in 2-D and sparse matrix methods emphasizing conjugate gradient algorithms. Semiconductor devices used as primary examples; additional examples drawn from E&M modeling, nonlinear pulse propagation, and laser physics.

This class has 6.012, and 6.013 as prerequisites.

6.673 will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by P. L. Hagelstein.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
