This week was the first in summer term 2018. Although the tutorials start only next week, I was already happy to spend some time for teaching again.

This summer I am going to take on two tutorials for Numerics for ODEs. Prof. Elisabeth Ullmann is the lecturer, and Laura Scarabosio and Lukas Köstler are going to be the other two tutors.

Topics covered this semester are:

  • interpolation (polynomial, splines)
  • quadrature
  • integration
    • single-step methods
    • stability / stiff problems
    • multi-step methods

There will be an exercise sheet every week. On each exercise sheet is one problem for homework, two problems to be discussed and solved in the tutorials and a quiz with some questions to puzzle.

I wish all students a nice and inspiring semester.
