Graduate seminar WS 18/19 Graduate Seminar on Numerical Simulation

Offered by
Prof. Ira Neitzel
Time and Room
Tuesday, 12-14 (t.b.d). INS/IEL, 2.035
First Meeting
Monday, August 6th, 10:15, room 5.002, Wegelerstr. 6

Seminar topics may include theoretical and numerical aspects related to model order reduction for partial differential equations and related optimization problems. If you are interested in the seminar please contact Prof. Dr. I. Neitzel also before the first seminar meeting, especially if you are unable to attend the first meeting.

Seminar Talk:

The topic has to be presented in an approximately 60 minutes beamer or blackboard talk, leaving suitable time for questions and discussion. Since most talks will be based on comprehensive original papers, the main ideas, results, algorithms and ideas of proofs, respectively, have to be presented.


A short handout has to be prepared and provided to the audience. Please finish this handout and arrange a meeting with Prof. Neitzel at least two weaks before your scheduled talk to discuss handout and structure of your talk.

Active Participation:

Active participation, including questions and comments, is expected.


Topics will be related to either Reduced Basis Methods or Proper Orthogonal Decomposition. Further topics are possible. For a first impression, have a (brief) look at the following two sources and identify the topic of interest to you. Let me know during the first meeting or send it by mail until August 6th, 2018. I will then assign specific topics (research papers) according to the participants’ interest.
