#### Learning Prerequisites

##### Required courses

MATH-407: Elliptic PDE's.

#### Teaching methods

To balance the theoretical part, sometimes one hour of exercices is replaced of one hour of class.

#### Assessment methods

Exam written

Dans le cas de l'art. 3 al. 5 du Règlement de section, l'enseignant décide de la forme de l'examen qu'il communique aux étudiants concernés.
