SEMESTER  1° Semester 
MODULES  This unit is a module of: 
TEACHING MATERIALS  AULAWEB 
The aim of the module is to provide the students with basic numerical techniques in order to solve parabolic, hyperbolic and elliptic partial differential equations, so that the students are able to solve problems relevant to their field of interest.
Attendance and active participation in the proposed training activities (lectures, exercises and numerical exercises) and individual study will allow the student to:
The lessons are divided into theory and practice. All the theory presented in the course is used in the exercises so that students can apply what they have learned and understand the difficulties in the applications. The exercises are both written and computer programming. Students are requested to bring their own computer and to install Matlab for which a student license is available.
The program of the module includes the presentation and discussion of the following topics:
Office hours: Appointments will be obtained by sending an email to jan.pralits@unige.it
JAN OSCAR PRALITS (President)
ELISABETTA ARATO
CRISTINA ELIA MOLINER ESTOPINAN (President Substitute)
All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
The final exam consists in passing 1) two written tests or 2) an oral exam.
1)
There will be an intermediate test and a final test, the first during the lesson period and the second after the end of the course.
Each test consists of an exam with about 5 problems that must be solved with an analytical procedure. The duration of a test is 3 hours. Students will find examples of tests proposed in previous years in aulaweb and some of which, upon request by the students, are carried out in detail in class.
Students must pass each written test with a minimum grade of 18/30. The final grade is the average grade of the two tests. A failed test can be retaken during exam sessions. There will be 3 exam sessions for the 'winter' session (January, February and during the teaching break provided by the Politecnic School at Easter) and 3 exam sessions for the 'summer' session (June, July, September).
2)
For those who do not want to take the written tests, there is the possibility of an oral exam on the content of the whole course. The oral exam will take place during one of the scheduled sessions.
Details on how to prepare for the exam and the degree of depth of each topic will be given during the lessons. The written tests will focus on 5 exercises and calculations on the topics indicated below.
The first test will be on the following topics: finite difference setting with arbitrary derivative and accuracy, numerical stability, convergence (local and global), discretization and grid (uniform and non), initial value problems
The second test will be on the following topics: Design of Experiment, Response Surface Modeling, the basis of Ansys Fluent
