  • Type: VU Lecture and Exercise

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to

  • practically apply the basics of numerical mathematics for physical models.
  • conduct numerical semiconductor process simulations.
  • select appropriate material models for simulations.

Subject of course

The basic principles of numerical mathematics relevant for the electrical engineer are explained: solving linear and nonlinear, real and complex algebraic equations, solution of integrals, interpolation, solving systems of ordinary and partial differential equation systems, finite difference method, and finite element method.

In the exercise, students are given the opportunity to apply the acquired knowledge to solve specific tasks, either as a C/C ++ program or as a model implemented in an existing software.

Teaching methods

Lectures, practical exercises.
