Office: Vincent Hall 327

Lectures are at 2:30 pm, Wednesdays, Lind Hall 305 except for February 2

** Objective:** This course is an introduction to the so-called
discontinuous
Galerkin (DG) methods for partial differential equations. The
emphasis will be on the
development of the methods for problems arising in fluid
dynamics.

**Lectures:**

- January 26: The original method: Linear scalar transport
- February 2: Linear, symmetric hyperbolic systems

2/2/2011 Video (flv) - February 9: Nonlinear scalar conservation laws

2/9/2011 Video (flv) - February 16: The RKDG method for scalar conservation laws

2/16/2011 Video (flv) February 23: The RKDG method for gas
dynamics
- April 6: Accuracy and superconvergence

4/6/2011 Video (flv) April 20: The effect of the nonconformity of the meshes

2/23/2011 Video (flv) March 2: DG methods for diffusion problems

3/2/2011 Video (flv) March 23: CANCELLED

March 30: Hybridizable methods: Static condensation

3/30/2011 Video (flv)

4/20/2011 Video (flv) April 27: Convection-diffusion
