AbstractConsolidation and extension of mathematics as the universal language for scientific facts:
The lecture aims on one hand at learning and exercising the mathematical trade and in the other hand at applying the learnt concept to medical, biological, chemical and mechanical problems.
ObjectiveSimple and complex facts can be described and analysed using mathematical tools.
Know and apply tools to discuss and solve (systems of) differential equations, basics of calculus in several variables and of linear algebra.
Used concepts: Euler method, (in-)stability, linear maps, matrix calculus, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, parametrizations, calculus in several variables.
Applications e.g. to modelling infectious diseases.
ContentEuler method, (in-)stability, linear maps, matrix calculus, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, parametrizations, calculus in several variables, line integrals
LiteratureG. B. Thomas, M. D. Weir, J. Hass: Analysis 2, Lehr- und Übungsbuch, Pearson-Verlag
