Free Online Course: Finite Element Method for Physics Problems

Hello Friends of SPS!

I thought I would share this free online course that started this week: 

The course title is "The Finite Element Method for Problems in Physics" and is being offered through the University of Michigan. This should be a great resource for understanding what goes on "under the hood" of many of the multiphysics simulation software that is available (especially Comsol, which we have available for students in the Computational Physics Lab NC3115).

I'm planning to take it, and if anyone else is interested we could meet periodically to go over the course material. If anyone does sign up, let me know!
