Partial Differential Equations and their numerical simulations play a decisive role in scientific researches in a vast of academic and industrial fields. The Finite Element Method is one of the most important discretization approaches to such equations. This summer course focuses on the theoretical and practical aspects in performing numerical simulations with the Finite Element Method.
Participants have the opportunity to learn about the theoretical fundamentals in morning classes with Prof. Dr. Malte Braack (Christian-Albrechts-Universität Kiel) and Prof. Dr. Thomas Richter (University of Erlangen-Nuremberg) as speakers. They are the main developers of the high performance adaptive Finite Element toolkit Gascoigne 3D. Then, in the afternoon lab classes, participants study the computational issues of Finite element schemes by implementing them using the Gascoigne toolkit.
