Course objectives
The solving of large technical and scientific problems can be often modeled by means of differential equations.Practical solving of such problems consists in application of suitable numerical method. This course aims to give a survey of methods for numerical solving of differential equations.The most important methods for solving of initial-value and boundary-value problems for ordinary equations and methods for partial differential equations are introduced. Particular methods are not only described from the theoretical point of view,but they are also reviewed from the point of view of stability,efficiency ,etc.The practical examples indicate the possible characteristic difficulties in applications.
  • Variational methods for solving ordinary and partial differential equations:Ritz method,Galerkin method. Methods for solving ordinary differential equations : 1.Initial-value problems (Runge -Kutta methods,multistep methods). 2.Boundary-value problems (shooting method,difference methods) Methods for solving partial differential equations: Finite -difference method,convergence and stability of difference schemes.
