The Discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin (DPG) Method with Optimal Test Functions

Prof. Dr. L. Demkowicz, University of Texas at Austin

The compact course has been postponed. We will inform you of the new dates as soon as possible

Course content

The 14h short course will cover fundamentals of the DPG method. This will be a blackboard math class occasionally complemented with a few slides showing sample numerical results. The course will be based on the last chapter of lecture notes on Mathematical Theory of Finite Elements which I hope to have completed at the time. For a current, working copy of the notes, see

Program: (lecture times will be confirmed soon).
