SkriptI will provide full lecture notes, available here:

LiteraturThe most useful textbook is

However we will only really use material covered in the first 10 lectures of Dynamical Systems I, so if you did not attend Dynamical Systems I, it is sufficient to read through the notes from the first 10 lectures.

In addition, it would be useful to have some familiarity with basic differential geometry and complex analysis.

W8 KP3V + 1Ukeine Angaben
KurzbeschreibungPoisson-Prozesse; Erneuerungsprozesse; Markovketten in diskreter und in stetiger Zeit; einige Beispiele und Anwendungen.
LernzielStochastische Prozesse dienen zur Beschreibung der Entwicklung von Systemen, die sich in einer zufälligen Weise entwickeln. In dieser Vorlesung bezieht sich die Entwicklung auf einen skalaren Parameter, der als Zeit interpretiert wird, so dass wir die zeitliche Entwicklung des Systems studieren. Die Vorlesung präsentiert mehrere Klassen von stochastischen Prozessen, untersucht ihre Eigenschaften und ihr Verhalten und zeigt anhand von einigen Beispielen, wie diese Prozesse eingesetzt werden können. Die Hauptbetonung liegt auf der Theorie; "applied" ist also im Sinne von "applicable" zu verstehen.

KurzbeschreibungThis course treats numerical methods for hyperbolic initial-boundary value problems, ranging from wave equations to the equations of gas dynamics. The principal methods discussed in the course are finite volume methods, including TVD, ENO and WENO schemes. Exercises involve implementation of numerical methods in MATLAB.

consideration underlying modern numerical methods for conservation laws and wave equations.
