Online PDE and Numerical methods courses

Post by mathQ » Wed Jun 02, 2010 3:46 am

Hello All,
Can you guys please suggest where can I do online PDE and numerical methods courses.

I know CVN, but it is too expensive.

In UIUC NetMath, their is no PDE course. In Diff. Eqn course their is a mention of PDE. However, I am not sure how much in depth knowledge of PDE is provided in that course.

Please suggest.

Thank you.

Do you need credit for the class, or do you just want to learn the material?

In the latter case, I suggest you look at textbooks or MIT open courseware instead (check out the math for engineers courses, 18.085 and 18.086 - they have video lectures and cover mostly PDEs and numerical methods). No need to pay for an actual course.

Oh, and don't worry about PDEs or numerical methods for the GRE. Didn't have a single question from those areas on my exam.
