Computational Mathematics (BM)

Computational mathematics is the branch of applied mathematics that develops and analyses numerical methods and algorithms for the solution of mathematical problems mainly from science and engineering. Important topics are well-posedness of the governing partial differential equations and convergence of the related numerical approximation. Topics such as accuracay, stability and efficiency of the numerical approximations, software aspects and computer implementation are important. The research at this division is directed towards the solution of time-dependent partial differential equations.

We provide courses at undergraduate level in Matlab programming, basic use and analysis of numerical algorithms, and advanced courses in linear algebra, linear analysis and partial differential equations.
