Conservation Methods for Elliptical Differential Equations

Postgraduate course

Course description

Objectives and Content

The course gives three equivalent formulations of elliptical equations: the integral formulation, the variational formulation and the saddle point formulation. From each of these formulations one derives different numerical methods and properties of these methods are discussed.

Learning Outcomes

The lectures will be on special topics on Master- and Phd. levels
