Annotation -
The aim of this course is to present the mathematical theory of finite element methods and their applications in solving linear elliptic equations. This covers: approximation theory for mappings preserving polynomials , application to the Lagrange and Hermite interpolation of functions in multidimensional space , description of the most frequently used finite elements, the error analysis, numerical integration in FEM.

Course completion requirements -

Credit is not required for the exam.

Credit will be given for successful solutions of at least 50 % homeworks which will be given to the students regularly during the semester. The solutions of the homeworks have to be submitted via SIS till the deadlines. If a student will not acquire the credit for solutions of homeworks, the credit can be obtained for a successful written test (at least 50% points). The credit test can be repeated twice.
