deal.II is a free, open source library to solve partial differential equations using the finite element method. The aim of this course is to provide an introduction into this framework. After this course, students should be able to implement suitably easy problems in deal.II.
The course will take place in the PCPool SW 1 with a preinstalled deal.II version. Since you will need your own installation for your final project, it is recommended to install deal.II on your own notebook. For using amandus, you will need to use a developer version. Instructions for installing can be found here. Files used in the course can be found here.
Students of mathematics (BSc and MSc) as well as students of scientific computing (MSc).
The seminar is in particular recommended for those students simultaneously taking the seminar Seminar
Numerical Methods for Parabolic Problems and Eigenvalue Problems. It is possible to use the implementation for a talk in this seminar
as final project.
Basic knowledge of FEM and C++ is required.
The number of participants is limited to 25 students. Please register via email containing subject of study, semester and academic degree. Preferrably, also state subjects of interest for the course and a problem you want to solve using deal.II.
For the successful completion of the final project (project summary, short presentation) 6 CP are awarded.
