The knowledge topics in the learning outcome are introduced and work is done on building the expected skills and competences.
the theory of and computer solution tools for certain standard but also examples of more advanced (based on highest level of international research) difference methods for the numerical solution of the following basic types of ordinary and partial differential equations:
1. Initial value problems for ODE’s.
2. Boundary value problems for ODE’s
3. Diffusion problems for 2nd order PDE’s
4. Advection problems for 1st order PDE’s
5. Wave problems for 2nd order PDE’s
6. Elliptic problems for 2nd order PDE’s.
1. apply the methods and tools within the course subject.
2. access theoretical and practical problems and select appropriate solution methods based on theoretical knowledge.
3. inform about problems and solution methods to equals and non-specialists or collaborators and end users.
Competences to independently and professionally
1. participate in individual and interdisciplinary collaboration within the course subject.
2. extend own competences within the course subject.
The course is additionally intended for the bachelorstudies in Actuarial Mathematics, Mathematics-Economics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Chemistry and other BSc, MSc and PhD programmes with the relevant prerequicites.

- Theory exercises
- 7,5 ECTS
- Type of assessment
- Written assignment, 2 weeks (half time)
- Exam registration requirements
All 7 written weekly assignments posed during the course must be approved and valid at the deadline for the course responsible to reject participation. (In 12/13 this was Monday in week 8 of the block).
The written assignments will be different for Ph.D.-students than for BSc-students.
- All aids allowed
- Marking scale
- passed/not passed
- Censorship form
- No external censorship
Several internal examiners
Written assignment, 1 week (full time). To parcitipate in the reexam all not approved/not valid assignments must be handed in again one week before the beginning of the reexam period at the latest.
Criteria for exam assesment
The student must in a satisfactory way demonstrate that he/she
has mastered the learning outcome of the course.
With reference to terms and numbering in the field "Learning Outcome" the following criteria for assessment are applied:
Knowledge points are assessed only when they are relevant for the exam project. When relevant a knowledge point is valued according to the extent of knowledge presented.
Skill points 1 and 2 are valued according to the extent of skills presented.
Skill point 3 is assessed through the exam registration requirements and not through the exam.
Competency point 1 is assessed through the exam registration requirements and not through the exam.
Competency 2 is valued based on the extent to which the knowledge from different subjects has been combined and extended in the application to the exam project.
