MA8103 - Non-Linear Hyperbolic Conservation Laws

About

Lessons are not given in the academic year 2020/2021

Course content

The course is given every other year, assuming enough students sign up for the course. Next time is Spring 2022. If not enough students register for the course, it will be given as a "ledet selvstudium".
Fundamental mathematical and numerical properties for conservation laws include: Existence of solutions, shock solutions, entropy conditions, Rankine-Hugoniot condition. Numerical techniques include front tracking, finite difference methods, Riemann solvers, and Gimm's method. Applications to gas dynamics and petroleum reservoirs will be discussed.

Learning outcome

1. Knowledge.
The course covers fundamental mathematical and numerical properties for conservation laws, in particular: Existence of solutions, shock solutions, entropy conditions, Rankine-Hugoniot condition. Numerical techniques include front tracking, finite difference methods, Riemann solvers, and Gimm's method


2. Skills.
The students should be able to handle problems and conduct researches on nonlinear partial differential equations and their applications, in particular applications to gas dynamics and petroleum reservoirs as well as to other applied disciplines



3. Competence.
The students should be able to participate in scientific discussions and conduct researches on high international level as well as collaborate in joint interdisciplinary researches.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures, possibly guided self-study.
