### MATH8010 ADVANCED NUMERICAL ANALYSIS

##### 3 Graduate Credits

- 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 8.6-8.8). 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 time-dependent parabolic problems including the Cahn-Hilliard (phase transitions) or the Navier-Stokes (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.

### MATH8011 SCIENTIFIC COMPUTATION

##### 3 Graduate Credits

- Fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems are oneof the popular topics in scientific computing thatcan be found in nature and many engineering systems. Examples include aircrafts, bridges, aneurysms in large arteries, biofilms, and artificial heart valves. FSI problems are often very complex and hard to solve analytically so they have to be analyzed by numerical simulation. The department has expertise in a wide range of modern computational techniques including the Immersed Boundary Method, the X-FEM scheme for problems with singularities and Moving Least Squares Meshless Methods. The first two are popular in applications in the biosciences and areused for FSI problems. Leading up to the special topics above will be consideration of finite difference (FD) schemes for stationary and time-dependent partial differential equation problems, iteration techniques such as preconditioned conjugate gradients and the use of FFT's for the FD approximation of solutions to thePoisson problem, fluid and elastodynamics problemsand computational solutions, and the use of FEM packages such as PDE Tool in MATLAB.

### MATH8012 APPLIED MATHEMATICAL MODELS

##### 3 Graduate Credits

- While intended for Mathematics graduate students, those in Engineering, Physics, and Chemistry will also find this course useful. Techniques covered are valuable for solving, approximating, or simplifying a wide class of ordinary and partial differential equation problems modeling physical systems. These include: nondimensionalization, qualitative analysis, regular and singular perturbation techniques, multiscale analysis including two-timing, traveling waves, and modeling. Techniques are developed within applications which will vary depending on the instructor. Possible examples arise from solidification, climate change, cancer tumor growth, phase separation, kidney function, calciumdynamics, neurons and neuronal networks, enzyme kinetics, and osmotic flow. Others might focus on fluid dynamics. Here we would study theories of continuous fields including the continuum model, kinematics of deformable media, the material derivatives, field equations of continuum mechanics, and inviscid fluid flow. Students will be expected to have a working knowledge of Advanced Calculus (MATH 6002), Linear Algebra (MATH 6012), and PDEs (MATH 6007).
