Finite Element Methods II
During the course the students will work on a project either in pair
or one by one. The students are free to propose their own project,
e.g. with applications in finance or quantum physics, or choose from
the proposed projects below.
A FINAL VERSION of the report shall
be handed in by the 5th of June at midnight the latest. There will be
oral presentations of all projects on the 28th of May.
- Project 1 (pdf)
- Project 2 (pdf)
- Project 3 (pdf)
Guidelines for submission of Projects
The overall guideline is that the report should
be meaningful in itself. In particular: define your
problem, your variables, and your setting. Ensure that the report can
be understood in its own context. Do not assume that the reader is
looking at the assignment instructions while reading.
- The first page of the report should state clearly:
- Names (and email addresses) of all students in the group (a group
may consist of no more than two students)
- Date of Submission
- Each report should be preceded by a brief summary of what you did.
For each conclusion you present you should provide the required
theory, (when appropriate) implementation details, and your
results. Make an effort in discussing and reflecting upon the
results. If you wrote any code to solve some problems, the code should
be attached by the end of the report. Since the code is an essential
part, it should be as readable as the report. A typical report
structure could look something like
That is just one possibility, there are
many others! Given the scope of the assignment, a report
might typically consist of something like 4--8, or maybe up to 10 pages
- Problem 1: some theory and results
- Problem 2: ...
- Problem 3: setup, comments on the code, and results
- Problem 4: ...
- Concluding discussion
- Attached code
- To save the environment I welcome fully electronic submissions. I
request that you mail me a single file in the portable document
format (pdf). The code should thus be included in the pdf.
- I do not accept handwritten reports.
