The course "Software Atelier: Differential Equations", treats the implementation of the underlying numerical methods designed for the solution of partial differential equations (PDEs). The students will learn how to design object-oriented code incorporating all the necessary components (mesh, discretization schemes, sparse linear algebra, linear solvers) needed for the discretization and efficient solution of PDEs using the Finite Element method and the Finite Volume method.
