Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

Examples of themes are systems of autonomous differential equations (dynamical systems in continuous time) and iterative models (dynamical systems in discrete time) with applications to modeling of population dynamics and of chemical reactions.

Intended learning outcomes *

After the course the student should be able to

  • use concepts. theorems and methods to solve and present solutions to problems within the parts described by the course content,
  • interpret certain classical mathematical models described by the course content and evaluate the relevance, plausibility and accuracy of such models,

in order to gain in-depth knowledge within one or several mathematical areas (especially, linear algebra, analysis and differential equations) with applications in biology, chemistry and chemical enginnering.
