Methods for Nonlinear Problems Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences

Providing fundamental concepts and practical experience in the numerical solutions of nonlinear problems

School of Computing & Mathematical Sciences

Date:  18 - 20 May 2020 (3 days)

Time:  10am - 4.30pm

Location:  University of Greenwich, Old Royal Naval College, Park Row, Greenwich SE10 9LS

Topics Covered:

This intensive three day course covers two key parts:

Part One – Fundamentals of Newton's Method and its Variants

This will focus on Taylor series expansion, Newton's method, inexact Newton methods and quasi-Newton methods. Concept of nonlinear preconditioners.

Part Two – Practical Methods for Nonlinear PDEs

This section will cover practical examples from engineering, physics and computational finance.

Key Benefits:

  • Participants will be equipped with the knowledge of the methodology required to underpin nonlinear problems.
  • State-of-the-art techniques will be demonstrated.
  • Classes are small, allowing plenty of scope for questions and discussion.
