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,
computer implementations of the finite element discretizations: element matrices, assembly
process, numerical integration, local mesh refinement, etc.
Textbook
Course content
There will be 12 lectures, 6 exercise classes, and 3 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.
