6.673 -- Introduction to Numerical Simulation in Electrical EngineeringCourse Description:
Selection of a simulation model and physical approximations. Solution of nonlinear coupled PDEs in 1-D through finite difference and finite element methods, Newton's method, and variants. Finite difference and finite element methods in 2-D and sparse matrix methods emphasizing conjugate gradient algorithms. Semiconductor devices used as primary examples; additional examples drawn from E&M modeling, nonlinear pulse propagation, and laser physics. Alternate years.
