Scientific Computing Lecture Series
Scientific Computing Program of Institute of Applied Mathematics (IAM) has launched Lecture Series to share knowledge and expertise on computational science and engineering (CSE) with the undergraduate/graduate students. Over the past two decades, CSE has become an increasingly important part of research in academia, industry, and laboratories. Mathematics-based advanced computing is now a prevalent means of discovery and innovation in essentially all areas of science, engineering, technology, and society, and the CSE community is at the core of this transformation. The purpose of these lecture series is to bring together researchers from a diversity of subdisciplines from the fields of computational mathematics and engineering with undergraduate/graduate students.
Schedule of 2018-2019 Spring Semester:
- General Instructions:
- We suggest to bring personal laptop, installed already MATLAB, in order to implement Exercises. MATLAB Student Version is available to download on MathWorks website, http://www.mathworks.com, or METU FTP Severs (Licenced).
- You need to fill the register form to attend the classes. Registration closed! Thanks for your interest.
- Introduction to MATLAB Programming: The aim of this seminar series is to provide an introduction to the MATLAB environment and language, in order to solve problems in science and engineering. The following topics will be covered
- February 25: Hamdullah Yücel
- 17:45-19:30: Basic commands and Syntax, Arrays and Matrices;
- February 26: Mehmet Alp Üreten
- February 28: Süleyman Yıldız
- 17:45-19:30: Graphics, Visualizations and Symbolic Toolbox.
This seminer series is organized for the participants, who do not know MATLAB or have basic knowledge. The lectures will be hold in U1-Auditorium.
- Numerical Methods for Differential Equations with MATLAB: The aim of this lectures is to teach basic numerical techniques for solving ordinary differential equations (ODEs) or partial differential equations (PDEs) and to implement them with MATLAB. The practical realisation on the computer will be done during the exercise courses in the afternoons.
- March 09: Ömür Uğur
- 10:00-12:30: Ordinary Differential Equations: Euler's Method, Runge-Kutta and Multistep Methods: ODEs with Examples (Lecture)
- 14:00-16:30: Exercises with MATLAB: MATLAB Files and Lecture
- March 10: Hamdullah Yücel
Necessary prerequisites: Basic knowledge of the MATLAB and differential equations. The lectures will be hold in U1-Auditorium.
- Programming of Finite Element Methods in MATLAB: The aim of the lecture is to discuss how to implement the linear finite element method for solving the Poisson equation in one and two dimensions. The practical realisation on the computer will be done during the exercise courses in the afternoon.
- April 27: Hamdullah Yücel
- 10:00-12:30: Introduction to FEM: Basics and Fundementals
- 14:00-16:30: Exercises with MATLAB
- Basic knowledge of the MATLAB
- Numerical mathematics, e.g., linear algebra, numerical integration.
- Our first concept is MATLAB for undergraduate students. The goal of this seminar series is to provide an introduction to the MATLAB environment and language, in order to solve problems in science and engineering. The first lecture series was held first on November 19-28, 2018 and then December 10-19, 20018 with the attendance of 40 participants.
