An introduction to some more advanced mathematical techniques that are frequently used in physics and engineering sciences. During the lectures, the fundamental theoretical aspects are discussed, while during the problem sessions the computational tecniques are practiced. We have the following specific learning outcomes
1. The student is able to formulate the basic concepts (definitions and theorems) from the course in his own words.
2. The student is able to reason about the basic concepts. More specifically, the student is able to construct (counter)examples and to answer insight questions about the basic concepts.
3. The student can formulate the proofs of the theorems in his own words.
4. The student has insight into the proofs of the theorems. More specifically, the student is able to explain steps in the proofs and answer insight questions about the proofs.
5. The student masters the learned computational techniques and can apply them to solve exercises.
6. The student is able to solve simple problems from physics and engineering sciences using the learned computational techniques.
The final grade is composed based on the following categories:
Other Exam determines 100% of the final mark.
Within the Other Exam category, the following assignments need to be completed:
First session: written exam about both the theory and exercises.
Second session: written exam about both the theory and exercises.
