The course deals with mathematical methods allowing to formalize and solve problems coming from the real world. For instance, the course will investigate how to model physical phenomena such as heat diffusion or wave propagation, as well as how to control in an optimal way a given process.
After the first part of the course the students will be able to use mathematical methods to describe real-world phenomena, such as heat diffusion and wave propagation. More specifically, they will be able to classify and manage the main analytical solution methods for linear partial differential equations. In the second part, the students will learn to manage multistage optimal control problems by means of dynamic programming. Lastly, basic notions of nonlinear programming tools will be investigated to better understand their use in the first two parts of the course.
