The main objective of this course is to treat the implementation of finite element and finite difference codes for the solution of partial differential equations (PDEs).

The students will learn how to design an object-oriented code incorporating all the necessary components (mesh, discretization schemes, sparse linear algebra, linear solvers). A particular focus will be put on the efficient implementation in MATLAB exploiting vectorization.
