Prerequisites

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.
