Eligibility:

In order to be eligible for a first cycle course the applicant needs to fulfil the general and specific entry requirements of the programme(s) that has the course included in the study programme.

Course specific prerequisites

Real analysis, Multivariabel analysis, Fourier analysis.

Aim

Partial differential equations are powerful computational tools in science and technology with an manifold of applications. This motivates to have a separate course in partial differential equations at the Engineering physics programme.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

To give an understanding of the fundamental partial differential equations.

Organisation

Lectures, exercises and a compulsary computer project about FEM.
