Programma

The course is divided in five chapters as follows. Each chapter includes also exercises and hands-on Matlab sessions
• Introduction to Matlab and basic programming  Basic Matlab commands, if/for/while instructions. Functions and @-functions. Design of basic algorithms.
• Optimization of N-variate functions Free and constrained optimization of N-variate functions. Lagrange multipliers and KKT conditions, duality theory. Optimization algorithms (Gradient, Newton, Log-barrier).
• Ordinary Differential Equations (ODE) Scalar ODEs and system of ODEs. Analytic solutions of linear systems of ODEs (exponential matrix). Equilibria of linear and non-linear systems (linearization, Liapunov function) and bifurcations.
• Function approximation and Fourier transform  Space of square-summable functions, orthonormal bases and Parseval’s identity, Fourier and Legendre expansions, least squares. Fourier transform, DFT/FFT, Dirac’s delta.
• Partial Differential Equations (PDE) Elliptic and parabolic PDEs: separation of variables, maximum and mean principle. Fundamental solution of heat equation, Dirac’s delta. Finite differences 1d. Hyperbolic PDEs: method of lines for 1st order hyperbolic PDEs, inflow and outflow; D’Alambert formula for wave equation on the line and semiline, separation of variables

REQUIREMENTS:
• Basics of linear algebra
• Basics of multivariate calculus and ODE solution
• Elementary programming skills not necessary but highly welcome
