Numerical Methods for Hyperbolic Equations (Winter Semester 2014/15)

Master Mathematics, Technical Mathematics, Economical Mathematics

We present basic theory for equations in conservation form and the fundamental principle to derive numerical methods. As an application we focus on compressible flow equations and Maxwell equations.

Requirements: Numerical methods for Differential Equations.

The lectures starts 21.10.
