Learning outcomes

The course will discuss the theory and practice of Finite Element and Volume Methods. The theoretical part will follow course notes provided by the Instructor, advanced textbooks on Differential Equations, Iterative Methods for Sparse Linear Systems and numerical methods of Optimization. A part of the course will be held in a Laboratory setting where the methods discussed will be implemented in Matlab, using either the commercial version provided by Mathworks or else the open source version GNU Octave. In addition, the packages FreeFem++ and Clawpack will be introduced. At the end of the course the student is expected to have an excellent knowledge of the scientific and computational aspects of the techniques used to solve Partial Differential Equations by means of Finite Elements and Volumes.

Program

The course will discuss the following topics:

* Minimum Principle and the weak form, existence, uniqueness and regularity

* The Rayleigh-Ritz and Galerkin methods, optimization methods, methods for the solution of sparse linear systems

* Transport and Diffusion equations, artificial diffusion, the generalized Galerkin method, discontinuous elements

* Hyperbolic and parabolic equations, semi and completely discretized problems

* Optimal Control of PDEs, Primal and Dual approaches, FDTO-FOTD approaches, Newton-type methods and SQP methods, Optimal Transport problems

Examination Methods

The purpose of the exam is to see if the student is able to recall and reproduce the theory and practice of Finite Elements. The exam will be oral. Alternatively, the student may choose to be examined on the basis of a specific software programming language. In this case, part of the evaluation will be replaced by a small project using the package FreeFem++ or Clawpack.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!


Alternative learning activities

In order to make the study path more flexible, it is possible to request the substitution of some modules with others of the same course of study in Mathematics at the University of Verona (if the educational objectives of the modules to be substituted have already been achieved in the previous career), or with others of the course of study in Mathematics at the University of Trento.
