CS 615:
Numerical Methods for
Partial Differential Equations

The previous course pages can be found here.

I've written an overview of what I hope the course will be like.

We'll write software using:

The previous class and I wrote some software that can be used in finite-element methods; you will be expected to use and extend it during the course. 

If you've never written a program in Scheme before, I strongly suggest you study The Schematics of Computation by Manis and Little.  The object-oriented system they introduce in the book is quite different from Meroon, but the rest of it will be helpful.  Be prepared to start programming soon.

I've added a list of subprojects that might give  you ideas about what to do to contribute to the large project.

A list of reference books on reserve in the Mathematics Library can be found here.

I've written an short paper about the software developed in this project the previous time it was taught.

The version of Meroon that we use in the course is now available.
