Solving differential equations with (pseudo-)spectral methods
I will give a quick practical introduction to spectral methods and their numerical implementation. I will introduce Chebyshev polynomials and show how to accurately solve linear/nonlinear ODE, eigenvalue problems etc. I will briefly discuss how to solve PDE's using similar ideas.
This is a roughly weekly series of didactical blackboard talks focussing on some theoretical aspect of Condensed Matter, Biological, and Statistical Physics..
