OVERVIEW

The course provides the theoretical bases to formulate mathematical models starting from experimental data. Basic knowledge is provided about mathematical models, numerical computation, regularization, numerical simulation of devices and systems.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to provide a complex of knowledge that allows the understanding and use of the main mathematical tools for numerical calculation, treatment and analysis of experimental data, interpretation and formulation of physical models -mathematics.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of the course the student will know the numerical methods for approximation, differentiation and integration of functions, the solution of ordinary differential equations systems, the singular values decomposition of matrices. He/she will also know the variational methods and their application to modeling.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam is divided in two parts; each of them is referred to a half of the program. Each part consists in the explanation of one topic chosen by the student and one topic chosen by the teacher.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The exam will allow assessing the true comprehension of the topics explained during the lessons and the ability of the student to explain a topic in a precise and concise manner.
