Course Description

Students deal with exercises after teacher explains following contents. Students deepen their own comprehension by comparing numerical calculation results with analytic results.
1. simultaneous equations, determinant
2. ordinary differential equation
3. finite element method
Students can acquire knowledge about DP1 and DP2 in this class.

Course Objectives

Goal of this class is that students acquire ability to solve the problems with numerical simulations which is necessary for scientific and technological researcher and engineer. Of course, analytic results are basic and important. But, in case of real problems, there are many cases we do not get analytic results because of complexity of the problems. Numerical simulation is a method to get approximate solution instead of analytic results. Students can understand numerical simulation and apply to various problems in this class.

Grading Policy

Attendance more than two thirds, seven exercises (100%).
The students will get simple explanations after these exercises.
