Program(PDF Document)


The Distributed and Unified Numerics Environment (DUNE) is a modular toolbox for solving partial differential equations using grid-based methods with special emphasise on parallel computing using distributed grids. This one week course will give an introduction to the DUNE core modules including the DUNE grid interface library, and the DUNE-FEM module. The school consists of lectures providing required background information but consists to a large part of hands on practical session.

The course will focus on the numerical treatment of evolution equations of the form

tU + ∇ · ( F(U) - D(U) ∇U ) + S(U) = 0

using continuous and discontinuous Galerkin methods. These schemes will be implemented with the DUNE-FEM module. We will introduce the dune core modules focusing on the parallel grid interface. Then the DUNE-FEM module will be introduced which provides interfaces for implementing higher order numerical methods. The emphasis will be on solving evolution equation on complex domains included surfaces using local adaptivity, parallelization and load balancing to obtain highly efficient numerical methods.
