Applied Mathematics 3

Integrated course, 5.00 ECTS


Course content

Analysis: line, surface and volume integrals (discussion of work, flows, circulations); integral theorems of Gauß and Stokes (transformation of differential equations into integral equations); partial differential equations using the examples of wave and heat conduction equations; solution by separation and Fourier expansion; solution by Fourier transform.
Numerical methods: error problems in numerics; solution of systems of linear equations (direct, indirect methods); zeros of transcendental functions (Newton, bisection method, ...); quadrature (numerical integration); solution of ordinary differential equations (Runge-Kutta method); approximation of point sets (fitting of curves, least squares); solution of partial differential equations using the example of the finite difference method for the heat conduction equation.
