Outline of lecture

Presented in this lecture are fundamentals of numerical analysis including FEM and BEM. In the first part of the lectures, variational methods and weighted residual methods are explained, in connection with FEM. Then the fundamentals and formulations of boundary element method are described. Finally mathematical basis and formulation of inverse problems are lectured.

Purpose of lecture
