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, Sturm–Liouville theory and associated theory for generalized Fourier series and Fourier’s 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.)
