2. What is the weight of an adult hippo skin? • 0.5 tons • 1 ton • 2 tons 10

3. What type of equation is this if the flow is supersonic? • elliptic • parabolic • hyperbolic 10

4. What is X in the definition below?The X is the difference between the PDE and the finite difference representation • Rounding error • Goodness of fit • Truncation error • Convergence measure • Marching error 10

5. Consider the finite difference approximation to the first derivative below. Which statement is false? • If the grid spacing is halved the error goes down by 1/4 • This is a central difference approximation • This form might be useful close to a wall • This form might be useful near the edge of the simulation 10

6. What is X in the description below?A X is one for which errors from any source (round-off, truncation, mistakes) are not permitted to grow in the sequence of numerical procedures as the calculation proceeds from one marching step to the next. • consistent numerical scheme • stable numerical scheme • convergent numerical scheme • second-order numerical scheme 10

7. What is X in the description below?A solution to a finite difference representation is said to be X if it approaches the true solution to the PDE having the same initial and boundary conditions as the mesh is refined. • consistent • stable • convergent • Ill-posed 10

8. What is X in the description below?By X, we mean those errors that arise as a result of the rounding to a finite number of digits in the arithmetic operations. • truncation • round-off errors • systematic errors • happy accidents 10

9. What is X in the definition below?A finite difference representation is said to be X if we can show that the difference between the PDE and its finite difference representation vanishes as the mesh is refined. • consistent • convergent • stable • first order • most excellent 10

10. Which statement is false? • Parabolic equations have degenerate characteristics • The initial value problem is ill-posed for elliptic problems • Discontinuities can appear in elliptic problems • The unsteady heat conduction equation is an example of a parabolic problem 10

11. What is X in the definition below? X error is the error in the solution to the PDE subject to the given initial values and boundary conditions caused by replacing the continuous problem by a discrete one and is defined as the difference between the exact solution of the PDE (round-off free) and the exact solution to the finite difference equations (round-off free). • Discretisation • Truncation • Round-off • Integration 10

12. Which statement is false? • The Courant number has no units • If you double the sound speed, the Courant number doubles • If you halve the space grid the Courant number doubles • If you halve the time grid, the Courant number doubles 10

14. The amplitude in a von Neumann stability test is found to have the following modulus. What can we say about the finite difference representation? • It’s unconditionally stable • It’s conditionally stable • It’s conditionally unstable • It’s unconditionally unstable 10
