« Summer Course 2017: ELEMENTary, my dear Laplace ! »

05/07/17 – 13/07/17

Mountain View

A great man once said: « We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking we used when we created them. »

What better way to apply this motto than to get NUMERICAL?! That’s what the finite elements method is all about! From the bottom (interpolation, integration, derivation… ) to the top (Laplace equations, elasticity problems, mesh generation, and even some computer-aided design) you will learn all the secrets of this mysterious field of mathematics. How, you would ask?! Well, we prepared for you the perfect mix between lectures, programming exercises and teamwork to keep you awake and motivated. Take your laptop with you and get ready for some challenges!

You’re probably asking yourself why we will need to keep you awake… Well, you all know that hard Mountain Viewwork asks for harder PARTIES! And we can assure you that there is no better place to do this than Belgium: beyond amazing beers, chocolate and fries, our traditions also include a tireless party sense. And no doubts that the BEST one can be found among the students of Louvain-la-Neuve! (if you still need to be convinced it’s one of the coolest places on Earth – just search « 24h vélo de Louvain-La-Neuve » on YouTube, and learn) If you’re ready for 9 days of complete madness, partyness and ThisIsTheBestTimeOfMyLife-ness: don’t be shy and just apply, you won’t regret it!
