DG Methods [MA5343]

The description of the module can be found here.
Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods have become increasingly popular in the past ten years. They are especially well-suited for the solution of convection-dominated flow problems and hyperbolic conservation laws. This course is split in two parts:

  1. We introduce DG methods for different prototypes of partial differential equations; this includes in particular the linear advection equation, the Poisson problem, and the heat equation.
  2. We present DG methods for solving scalar hyperbolic conservation laws as well as systems. This includes in particular the compressible Euler equations. We also give a short introduction to the theory of hyperbolic conservation laws.
This course covers the whole range from theoretical properties of DG schemes (error estimates, stability) to their implementation. Exercise problems address theoretical aspects and contain programming problems in matlab.
