Course detail

# Seminar on Applied Mathematics

FSI-0AMAcad. year: 2023/2024

The course follows topics in Mathematics I, II, III and will introduce students to the possibilities of using the basic mathematical apparatus in mathematical modelling in physics, mechanics and other technical disciplines. In seminars, some problems will be selected that students have previously encountered, and these will be discussed in more detail from a mathematics point of view. Furthermore, mathematical modelling using differential equations as well as methods of analysis of the equations obtained will be shown.

Aims

The aim of the course is to show students in more detail the application of the basic mathematical apparatus in physics, technical mechanics and other fields. The objective is to teach students to solve analytically selected problems for partial differential equations, and to analyze non-linear ordinary differential equations and their systems, which appear in some mathematical models.

After completing the course, students will be able to solve analytically selected problems for partial differential equations and understand the relations with problems from other areas of mathematics. They will be able to determine stability and types of the equilibria of non-linear autonomous differential systems and behaviour of solutions in their neighbourhoods. On selected problems from physics, mechanics and other disciplines, the students will be familirized with the possibilities of mathematical modelling using ordinary differential equations and with the analysis of equations obtained.
