  • characteristics1-Intro_and_mathematical_appendix-2009.pdf: Introduction to method of characteristics. This extra set of notes is adapted to the 2009 lecture . The application to the 1D Euler equations was moved to the very beginning as it can be performed without the full and general theory. The very general method or methods in applied math-style form is now only an appendix (not examined).
  • NB: The 2D Finite Element notes use Jacobian domain transformation formulae. These can be revisited in CFD-1 lecture note on Body Fitted (curvilinear) grids (see above)
