- classical partial differential equations (Laplace equation, wave equation, heat equation)
- distributions, fundamental solutions of differential operators, Sobolev spaces
- weak solutions, boundary value problems for partial differential equations
The students shall
- Learn about and be able to use differential equations as a means of mathematical modeling,
- Apply results from functional analysis to the systematic theory of partial differential equations,
- practice mathematical working methods (development of mathematical intuition and its formal justification, training of the ability to abstract, proof techniques),
- improve their oral communication skills in the exercises by practicing free speech in front of an audience and during discussion.
None. The competences taught in the following modules are recommended: either Linear Algebra I and Linear Algebra II or Basic Linear Algebra or Linear Algebra incl. Foundations of Mathematics, either Analysis I and Analysis II or Basic Real Analysis or Analysis I and Analysis II.
