Introductions of Numerical analysis of differential equations appearing in the civil engineering is given. First, learn the solution of ordinary differential equation by Finite Difference Method (FDM) and its features, then, learn the solution of partial differential equations by FDM.
In this class, as well as learning the basic theoretical aspects of the numerical analysis method, we aim to learn the practical skill of numerical analysis through the computational practice of the programing.
I. Acquire a skill to choose the appropriate numerical method depending on the problem.
II. Learn the basic knowledge on the typical numerical methods (advantages and disadvantages of each method).
III. Acquire a practical skill to implement the programing code.
FDM solution of ordinary and partially differential equations, Explicit and Implicit, Interpolation, Finite Difference Approximation of gradients, Numerical error, Programing

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
A textbook is not specified. Some materials will be distributed in each class.
None
Based on a report submitted in the end of class, understanding of "theory and features of FDM" and acquiring of "skill of programing" are evaluated.
