Text:  No book needed at this time 
Partial differential equations (PDEs) model a wide range of physical phenomena including heat conduction, wave propagation, and fluid flow. Computer approximations to the solutions of the PDE problems that arise in these applications are usually required. This course will focus on the finite element method (FEM) and will use energy (Hilbert space) techniques. The first part of the course will cover error analysis for ordinary differential equations from the Atkinson text (Chapter 6) and also iterative methods for matrices (Sections 8.68.8). The second part of this course will discuss the mathematical foundations of the FEM in Sobolev spaces and develop a basic approximation theory. Once this background is established, we will survey error estimates developed in various applications which may include first order hyperbolic equations, nonlinear timedependent parabolic problems including the CahnHilliard (phase transitions) or the NavierStokes (fluid flow) equations. We may also look at discontinuous Galerkin discretizations in time and space. Nonconforming methods are also of interest as well as the development of a posteriori error estimates.
