About the course:
The course gives an introduction to a number of modern methods and techniques in applied mathematics via examples from applied areas. It consists of the following rather independent items: dimension analysis and scaling, perturbation methods, calculus of variation, elementary partial differential equations, SturmLiouville theory and associated theory for generalized Fourier series and Fouriers method, theory of transforms, Hamiltonian theory and isoperimetric problems, integral equations, dynamical systems (chaos, stability and bifurcations), discrete mathematics, and briefly about some other useful techniques in applied mathematics (distribution theory, similarity methods, homogenization, etc.)
Syllabus with reading list
For every course there is a formal course syllabus. This contains the course name, extent and purpose. The course syllabus also provides information about content, literature and how the examination will take place.
The Student Portal provides logged-on students access to course and programme pages, study results, e-transcripts, information from the student unions, file area, webmail, and more.
