The goal of the course is to provide a strong understanding of finite element fundamentals to doctoral students intending to pursue research in the area. The course will present the mathematical framework based on functional analysis. Doctoral students are expected from a variety of fields and backgrounds, so the course will begin with a short math review covering topics in real analysis, vector spaces, and PDE. Next, the basic components of the finite element method will be presented in the context of elliptic boundary value problems. This will be followed by a discussion of time discretization. The last part of the course will consist of case studies in which special topics are considered in depth, with emphasis on literature review. 

When Offered Spring.
