## Theory and practice of Finite Element Methods

This is a shared course between the SISSA PhD track

on Mathematical Analysis, Modeling, and Applications

(math.sissa.it) and the Master in High Performance Computing

(www.mhpc.it). It is a course that follows two parallel lines:

theory of finite element methods (graduate students level, ~20 hours) and

practice of finite element methods (mhpc students levels, ~20 hours).
