Current announcements


Date and Place

The seminar will take place on Wednesday, August 31, 2016 in the seminar room 3.060.


The corrected handouts can be downloaded here.


08:30 A. Zarth Wohlgestelltheit der akustisten Wellengleichung
  S. Schneider Energieerhaltung und
Konvergenz der semi-diskreten Finite Elemente Methode
  V. Kirsch Perfectly Matched Layer
14:30 C. Carle Discontinuous Galerkin für die Wellengleichung (Teil 1)
  J. Leibold Discontinuous Galerkin für die Wellengleichung (Teil 2)


The entire seminar will be in English.


Participants should be familiar with basic analytical and numerical concepts of partial differential equations (PDE). In particular, knowledge of the finite element method for elliptic PDEs is expected. The seminar is aimed at master students in mathematics attending the lecture “Time integration of PDEs” which takes place in the summer semester 2016.
