This course will introduce students to current research trends in an area of computational mathematics.

Possible Topics:

  • Data mining algorithms
  • Multiscale and multilevel techniques
  • Numerical solution of PDEs, ie. Finite Element Method
  • Optimisation
  • Approximation in particular of high-dimensional functions
  • Algorithms for the solution of linear systems of equations including iterative methods

Note: Graduate students attend joint classes with undergraduates but will be assessed separately.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

1. Explain the fundamental concepts of a special topic in computational mathematics and its role in modern mathematics and applied contexts.
2. Demonstrate accurate and efficient use of specific computational mathematics techniques.
3. Demonstrate capacity for mathematical reasoning through analysing, proving and explaining concepts from computational mathematics.

Indicative Assessment

Assessment will be based on:

  • Three assignments (20% each; LO 1-3)
  • Final examination (40%; LO 1-3)

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
