In this course you will learn the basic knowledge of
the theory, practice and implementation of finite
element methods to the partial differential equations
of physics and engineering sciences. The main purpose
is to give a balanced combination of theoretical and
practical skills. The theory part gives you knowledge
on the derivation of finite element formulations, a
priori and a posteriori error estimates, methods and
algorithms of adaptive mesh refinements, standard
stability estimates, etc. The practical part of the
course will teach you a knowledge on computer
implementation of the finite element discretizations:
element matrices, assembly process, numerical
integration, local mesh refinement, etc, in one and
two space dimensions.
Textbook
Course content
There will be 12 lectures, 6 exercise classes, and 5 laborations.
Examinations
There will be three mandatory assignments and one exam.
Assignments: 2 points Final: 3 points Scholastic Dishonesty
Students may work together and discuss the homework problems with
each other. Copying work done by others is an act of scholastic
dishonesty and will be prosecuted to the full extent allowed by
University policy. For more information on university policies
regarding scholastic dishonesty, see the University of Uppsala's
policy at
http://www.it.uu.se/edu/fusk.pdf . The policy is in Swedish.
Students with Disabilities:
According to the University regulation all students with
disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for
reasonable accommodation of their disabilities.
If you need help or want to get more information about it please
contact the University of
Uppsala's
services for students with disabilities.
Credits
This course is mainly adopted from previous courses
developed by Axel Målqvist. All credits go to him.
