B6.1 Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equations (202223)
Topic outline


I have listed below past examination questions, which may be suitable as practice questions for this year's Part B and MMSC MSc exams. In addition to the 2022 Numerical Solution of PDEs B6.1 and MMSC examination papers, you may wish to use as practice questions the ones listed below. Because the syllabus of the course changed a number of times over the years and, in particular, starting with MT 2021, suitable exam questions are contained in exam papers whose name changed over the years. I've listed below some past exam questions that you may find helpful. If you happen to come across concepts in them that are no longer covered in this year's course, then just ignore those bits. The papers listed below are (undergraduate) Part B papers, but all of these questions are equally suitable as practice questions for the MSc students in Mathematical Modelling and Scientific Computing taking the course. Towards the end of this message I have listed a few MSc examination papers, which contain suitable practice questions for MSc students; these are of course also suitable as practice questions for Part B students.
