Applied Mathematics: an Introduction to Scientific Computing

  • Frontal Lectures (about 30h), Interleaved with Laboratories (about 30h): total 60h
  •  This course is shared between the PhD in Mathematical Analysis, Modeling, and Applications, the Master in High Performance Computing ( and the Laurea Magistrale in Matematica


Topics in Computational Fluid Dynamics


  • Introduction to CFD, examples.
  • Incompressible flows.
  • Numerical methods for potential and thermal flows
  • Numerical methods for viscous flows: steady Stokes equations
  • Discretization techniques for steady and unsteady Navier-Stokes equations.
  • Advanced optional topic (1): compressible flows.
  • Advanced optional topic (2): fluid and structure interaction.

Material will be provided during classes.
