MAT3200 Mathematical Methods  10 stp
The course is administrated by
Faculty of Science and Technology
Type of course
The course is included in the study programs Mathematical Sciences  master and Applied Physics and Mathematics  master (5years). It may also be taken as a singular course and is offered for inbound exchange students.
Course contents
This is a course on the mathematical modeling of linear continuous systems. These are systems containing an infinite number of degrees of freedom. Examples taken from the modeling of traffic flow, heat conduction, waves and option pricing in economy (Blach Scholes formula). The course will cover both analytic and numerical methods and will give an introduction to the numerical solution of partial differential equations with emphasis on the basic model equations derived in the course. The course MAT2200, Differential equations, is a prerequisite and some familiarity with numerical methods is highly recommended. Some knowledge of physics would also be helpful.
Application deadline
Applicants from countries within EU/EEA: June 1st for the autumn semester and December 1st for the spring semester. Exchange students and Fulbright students: 1 October for the spring semester and 15 April for the autumn semester.
Admission requirements
Bachelor of science degree in mathematics or equal. Recommended prerequsites is MAT2201 Numerical Methods and MAT2200 Differential Equations. Application code is 9371.
Objective of the course
After the course the students are supposed to know
 Simple models leading to central partial differential equations
 First order partial differential equations
 Classification and solution methods for second order partial differential equations
 Separation of variables and generalized Fourier series
 integral transforms
 Green¿s functions and og distributions
 Finite difference methods for partial differential equations
After the course the students are expected to be able to apply both traditional analytic solutions methods and numerical methods to solve partial differential equations.
Language of instruction
The language of instruction and the syllabus is English. Examination questions will be given in English, but may be answered either in English or a Scandinavian language.
