AIMS AND CONTENT

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, the optimization. He/she will also know the variational methods and their application to modeling.

TEACHING METHODS

Classroom or remote (through Teams) lectures (50 hours), including some MATLAB demonstrations.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

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. The total score is 30.

Students with learning disorders ("disturbi specifici di apprendimento", DSA) will be allowed to use specific modalities and supports that will be determined on a case-by-case basis in agreement with the delegate of the Engineering courses in the Committee for the Inclusion of Students with Disabilities.
