Learning objectives
The course aims to offer an enlarged vision on the various aspects - both from the theoretical and implementation viewpoints - that characterize the modern use of Scientific Computing, along with its application to problems arising in physics, biology and engineering.
Expected learning outcomes
Upon completing the course, the students will be able to apply adequate discretization techniques to handle partial differential equation problems of elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic type. They will also be able to quantify the accuracy of the chosen method and to produce an adequate implementation in Matlab.
