- We will try to use Python and IPython/Jupyter notebooks for everything (lecture notes & homework assignments)
- I highly recommend you to install Anaconda Python Distribution

(Skoltech email is enough for the free Academic license for the full version) - Python 2.7 is used
- Feel free to ask TAs for help

**Week 1:**Physical models & PDE & IE, finite differences 1D/2D**Week 2:**FEM (basic elements, meshes, tools for meshing)**Week 3:**Sparse matrices/iterative methods/multigrid (geom & AMG)**Week 4:**Exterior problems & IE: discretization, quadrature, multipole, hierarchical matrices + test)**Week 5:**High-frequency & Fourier**Week 6:**Software packages for PDEs**Week 7:**Exam & test**Week 8:**App Period

Now let us start the First lecture
