Methods of Time Discretization

doc. RNDr. František Bubeník, CSc.

  • Course code: 101MTD
  • Hours dotation: 1 + 1
  • Credits: 2
  • Finals: A (Assessment)

The course is devoted to a highly versatile and effective method for solving problems containing the time, especially evolutionary problems based on partial differential equations with various boundary and initial conditions. This method represents a modern approach to modeling and solving technical problems, both linear and non-linear, describing processes in various technical areas, such as deflections flat plates, heat conduction, the vibration of beams and plates, reology problems and others. It assumes only a basic knowledge of differential and integral calculus and functional analysis. The course contains basic concepts of functional analysis and variational methods needed to understand the formulation and modeling of technical problems, an overview of solving methods, as well as the theoretical and practical foundations. Problems are physically motivated and examples illustrating and clarifying the theory are given. Weak formulation, generalized and weak solutions are presented. The course is conducted in an accessible form with plenty of examples.
