## OBIETTIVI E CONTENUTI

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI (DETTAGLIO) E RISULTATI DI APPRENDIMENTO

The course focuses on three different topics: dynamic optimization, nonlinear programming, and partial differential equations.

In more detail, students will learn how to formalize and solve dynamic optimization problem via dynamic programming. Then, they will analyze the formalization and solution of static decision problem using nonlinear programming. Lastly, they will investigate the use of mathematical methods to describe real-world phenomena, such as heat diffusion and wave propagation, and the main analytical solution methods.

For all arguments, the focus will be on both methodological concepts and application examples. The various concepts are explained via traditional lessons.

MODALITA' DIDATTICHE

PROGRAMMA/CONTENUTO
