Continuation of the courses [MAT-80-11A-K-4] and [MAT-80-11B-K-4]. Numerical methods that deal with elliptic and parabolic differential equations will be discussed and analytically analyzed. In particular, the following topics will be covered:
  • approximation methods for elliptic problems,
  • theory of weak solutions,
  • consistency, stability and convergence,
  • approximation methods for parabolic problems.


  • D. Braess: Finite Elemente,
  • A. Quarteroni, A. Valli: Numerical Approximation of PDEs,
  • C. Grossmann, H.-G. Roos: Numerische Behandlung partieller Differentialgleichungen.


Further literature will be announced in the lecture; Exercise material is provided.


Registration for the exercise classes via the online administration system URM (
