### Catalogue data

 Abstract Mathematical description of different physical phenomena and numerical methods for solving the obtained equations are discussed. The course presents the fundamentals of mathematical modeling including ordinary and partial differential equations along with boundary and initial conditions. Finite Difference Method and Finite Element Method for solving boundary value problems are shown in detail. Objective After completing this course a student will understand the main idea of representing physical phenomena with mathematical equations, will be able to apply an appropriate numerical method for solving the obtained equations, and will possess the knowledge to qualitatively evaluate the obtained results. Content a. Introduction to physical modeling and simulationsb. Numerical methods for solving boundary (initial) value problemsb.i. Finite difference method (FDM)b.ii. Finite element method (FEM) c.
