Fall 2004 Mat 3NA Documents
- Preliminary plan
for Mat3NA, fall 2004. (Updated July 15, 2004).
- Course description for Mat 3NA in danish and english.
- Note: The "Total" scedule for 3NA is
unchanged, but the lectures and the exercises has been
switched, and the rooms have been changed as of 19th of
We (unfortunately) now have 2 auditoriums and in the first couple of
weeks lectures and exercises will be interchanged as I (JH)
see fit:-) See the preliminary plan above.
- Additional course description for Mat 3NA in english:

Lectures: Thursday 9-11 in Rockefeller Auditorium.
Instructor: Mogens Esrom Larsen, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Exercises: Wednesday 10-12 in Aud. 8.
Exercise times may occationally
be used for lectures (and the other way
around). For details see the preliminary plan for Mat3NA, fall 2004.
Teaching period: 30th August - 17. December 2004. Exercises start in week 37.
Book: Susanne C. Brenner, L. Ridgway Scott.: The Mathematical
Theory of Finite Element Methods, Second edition, Springer. TAM15.
Other material: Possibly some articles/notes (not yet determined).
Examination: The course is graded on the danish 13 scale, with the
grade based solely on a 3 hour written test given on the
6th January 2005. The exam is open book, but programmable
pocket calculators/computers are not allowed.
To be allowed to take the exam, you must first pass the mandatory
problems/projects during the semester.
Curriculum [Pensum] for Mat 3NA E-2004:
Existence and uniqueness of solution to variational formulations of
elliptic boundary value problems.
Convergence of and a priori error estimation for finite element
discretizations of the above.
A posteriori error estimation for the finite element method.
This curriculum is covered by
Brenner - Scott. The mathematical theory of finite element methods
Ch. 0-5 + 9-10, plus notes, articles and other literature used in the
More details to follow near the end of the course.
New:Details about the exam January 2005 in
- Directions for projects in
English and in Danish.
- After hour access to terminal rooms requires a valid "studiekort"
and (maybe, but I don't think so any more) this card to be signed and stamped.
