Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


Model reduction methods for ordinary and partial differential equations are discussed, in particular
  • Krylov space methods,
  • reduced bases,
  • Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD).

Competencies / intended learning achievements

By completing this module, the students know and understand basic concepts for theoretical and numerical model order reduction of large scale systems. They are able to name the essential propositions of the lecture as well as to classify and to explain the connections. They understand the proofs presented in the lecture and are able to reproduce and explain them. In particular, they can outline the conditions and assumptions that are necessary for the validity of the statements.

By completing the given exercises, the students have developed a skilled, precise and independent handling of the terms, propositions and methods taught in the lecture. They have learnt how to apply the methods to new problems, analyze them and develop solution strategies.
