deal.II is a free, open source library to solve partial differential equations using the finite element method. The aim of this course is to provide an introduction into this framework. After this course, students should be able to implement suitably easy problems in deal.II.
The course will take place in the PCPool SW 1 with a preinstalled deal.II version. Since you will need your own installation for your final project, it is recommended to install deal.II on your own notebook. For using amandus, you will need to use a developer version. Instructions for installing can be found here. Files used in the course can be found here.
Students of mathematics (BSc, MSc, PhD) as well as students of scientific computing (MSc, PhD).
Basic knowledge of FEM and C++ is required.
The number of participants is limited to 25 students. Please register via MÜSLI (or email containing subject of study, semester and academic degree). Preferrably, also state subjects of interest for the course and a problem you want to solve using deal.II in separate email.
For the successful completion of the final project (project summary, short presentation) 6 CP are awarded.
