15-859E: Hierarchical Methods for Simulation

A Graduate Course in the Carnegie Mellon University Computer Science Dept., Fall 1998

Instructor: Paul Heckbert

Time: TR 10:30-11:50, First class is 15 Sept., last class is 4 Dec. 1998
Place: Wean 5409A

Shortcuts: schedule ; links on n-body , multigrid , wavelets

Description: This course will cover hierarchical methods for simulating physical phenomena. In recent years, the development of n-body algorithms, multigrid methods, and wavelets have permitted very large simulation problems in science and engineering to be solved. We will study these algorithms and implement some of them.
