On successful completion of the module, students should be able to:
- solve partial differential equation (initial and boundary value problems) using a variety of methods
- analyse the stability of differentiation schemes for initial-value problems in partial differential equations
- outline the principles behind the most commonly used methods for solving systems of linear equations (Gauss-Jordan elimination, conjugate gradient), their advantages and limitations
- describe and apply the basic principles fo Monte Carlo methods
- apply the methods and principles learned in MP468C to solve a substantial problem in physics or applied mathematics
- present their results in a well structured and presented and properly referenced written report.
