The course deals with numerical methods to solve the hydrodynamic equations. It includes finite differences in time and space, with analysis of shortcomings in terms of stability, truncation error, computational modes, numerical phase and group speed, etc. The course also includes computer projects and the programming of a shallow-water model.
