This course is devoted to an introduction to numerical modeling and project work done in groups of two/three. The aim is to give a flavor of scientific computing; namely mathematical modeling of physical, technical, etc. processes, development and analysis of numerical algorithms, and their implementation on a computer.#### ♦Contents:

- Introduction to numerical modeling
- Numerical methods for ODEs (IVP)
- Numerical methods for PDEs (BVP)
- Solution of the heat equation (IBVP)
- Newton's method for nonlinear problems

#### ♦Short bibliography:

- Please see the *.pdf version of the lecture notes.

#### ♦Evaluation:

- Exam in terms of a presentation (15 minutes)
- In the final evaluation, the results of the project work will be presented in a short presentation including a short written report (approx. 10 pages)
