MATH-478 / 5 credits

Teacher: Krieger Joachim

Language: English


Summary

This course will give an introduction to some aspects of nonlinear dispersive partial differential equations. These are time evolution problems that arise in many contexts in physics, such as quantum mechanics, electrodynamics, fluid motion and relativity.

Content

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

A solid foundation in analysis (including measure theory and functional analysis) is necessary. Advanced topics such as harmonic analysis would be helpful, but are by no means required.

Assessment methods

Active participation in the exercise sessions

Oral final examination
