SF2523 Topics in Scientific Computings 3.0 credits
An advance course on modern problems in Scientific Computing. The course is a supplementary course to DN2221/SF2520 Applied Numerical Methods
Content and learning outcomes
A problem from scientific computing on advanced level will be presented. The topics will differ on the occasions the course is given. The course will be given as a lecture series to be followed and a project to be accomplished.
Intended learning outcomes
The overall goal of the course is to give a deep plunge into a current problem in scientific computing.
After the course you will be able to
- select and implement appropriate methods for an advanced specific problem
- perform simulations of the problem with the help of appropriate software
- judge the quality of the results and suggest improvements of the algorithms and the code.
Literature and preparations
Single course students: 90 university credits including 45 university credits in Mathematics. English B, or equivalent.
DN2221/SF2520 Applied Numerical Methods or similar
Depends on the actual subject
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- PRO1 - Project, 3.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
In this course all the regulations of the code of honor at the School of Computer science and Communication apply, see: http://www.sci.kth.se/institutioner/math/avd/na/utbildning/hederskodex-for-studenter-och-larare-vid-kurser-pa-avdelningen-for-numerisk-analys-1.357185
Other requirements for final grade
