This course is in at least 1 assigned curriculum part of the STEOP.

2022S, VO, 3.0h, 4.0EC


  • Semester hours: 3.0
  • Credits: 4.0
  • Type: VO Lecture
  • Format: Hybrid

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to check if the numerical solution of an ordinary differential equation makes sense. Furthermore, depending on the inherent structure of the differential equation, students are able to select the appropriate numerical integrator.


Subject of course

Initial and boundary value problems for ordinary and partial differential equations: one-step and multi-step methods, adaptivity, structure perserving integrators. Introduction to numerical methods for partial differential equations.

Teaching methods

Solution of exercise problems, possibly including numerical implementation; discussion of students' solutions in small exercise groups.

Mode of examination


Additional information

This is the version of the "Numerical analysis of ODEs" lecture for students of the "Interdisciplinary Mathematics" master program. Compared to the VO 101.316 Numerics of differential equations, the lecture will  already end on the 2nd of June.


Lectures: Wednesday and Thursday 10:00 - 11:30 (first lecture on March 1st)

The lecture will be held in person. An additional live-stream will be provided via the Zoom link



Recordings of the lectures will be put on TUWEL.
