Interested in learning how to solve partial differential equations with numerical methods and how to turn them into python codes? This course provides you with a basic introduction how to apply methods like the finite-difference method, the pseudospectral method, the linear and spectral element method to the 1D (or 2D) scalar wave equation. The mathematical derivation of the computational algorithm is accompanied by python codes embedded in Jupyter notebooks. In a unique setup you can see how the mathematical equations are transformed to a computer code and the results visualized. The emphasis is on illustrating the fundamental mathematical ingredients of the various numerical methods (e.g., Taylor series, Fourier series, differentiation, function interpolation, numerical integration) and how they compare. You will be provided with strategies how to ensure your solutions are correct, for example benchmarking with analytical solutions or convergence tests. The mathematical aspects are complemented by a basic introduction to wave physics, discretization, meshes, parallel programming, computing models. The course targets anyone who aims at developing or using numerical methods applied to partial differential equations and is seeking a practical introduction at a basic level. The methodologies discussed are widely used in natural sciences, engineering, as well as economics and other fields....

Would have like more "empty" cells in notebooks for trying to establish loop one self and then having a "correct" output to aim for. Maybe followed by a solution cell with a correct implementation.

A fascinating teaching technique, delivering quality content with a well-thought quizzes system! It' hard to find better courses in the domain of Finite Difference and Spectral Element methods

The video lectures are very well made and great effort is made to present concepts in an understandable way. The existence of the Jupyter notebooks greatly compliment the course's objectives. There is a lot of content and the author gives initiative to examine the given code with the follow along videos. The material is quite extensive and if someone wants to get into more details in certain parts they might be unsatisfied. However the course gives a good outlook of the methods contained.

I learnt a lot and really liked it, I only think that somehow they should grade the labs because you can pass the course without properly checking the labs and in finite elements the labs have some things that are just assume but not explained properly and there is a mistake in the simulation

Overall, a nice overview of numerical methods to solving PDEs. Most positive aspects of the course: relatively concise, implementation-oriented. Most negative aspects of the course: examples all focused on wave equation + some concepts introduced too fast in the second half of the course.

The high quality course - videos with thoughtful presentation at the background and well explained Jupyter notebooks in Python. Topics beyond the course are mentioned in the last video in the best traditions of a good serial season. Waiting for the next season!

Overall an excellent introduction. The Jupyter notebooks are a great format for these sorts of demonstrations. I do feel that the Finite/Spectral element segments would be more clear if they explained the mathematical derivations in more detail.

It was a very interesting class on numerical methods. I think it can be improved if homework assignment were given to help reinforce the lectures. The material was taught in a logical order and I enjoyed the overview of each method.

It's a nice course for someone who don't have a previous background about numerical methods, but there should be another course in which we tackle those concepts in more details because I felt that I lost in the mathematics.

As someone who had prior but not so strong introduction to numerical methods, this course helped me bridge the gap between theory and implementation in code. Personally, I think the programming exercises are too few.

I liked how the course was structured and well curated. However I feel it can be improved with more intuitive explanations of the numerous mathematical concepts introduced.

Great experience. Really came to know about the theory of simulation techniques coupled with the introductory knowledge of python language.
