Aims and scope
Problem solving for ordinary and partial differential equations. Manipulation of analytic functions of complex variable, distributions, Fourier series, Fourier transform, Laplace transform, distribution signals. These topics will be presented in the perspective of their relevant applications to problems in Electrical Engineering.
The teaching activity of this course includes lecture hours and training sessions. Expectations of achievements and abilities resulting from a successful attendance of this course are those associated with the Dublin Descriptors DD1, DD2, DD3, DD4.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
The course is focused on the acquisition and critical use of basic tools for: functions of complex variable, zeroes, poles, residues, methods for solving problems related to partial differential equations, distributions, Fourier series, Fourier transform, Laplace transform, separation of variables techniques, essentials of Functional Analysis. Main applications are: periodic solutions of ordinary differential equations; Cauchy problem for wave equation and heat equation; boundary value problems for Laplace equation; analysis of distribution signals; in-depth study of signal processing using time and frequency domain.
Lecture hours will allow students to know and understand the topics above (DD1) and to apply knowledge and understanding (DD2, DD3).
Training sessions will allow studentsto become familiar with the theoretical concepts presented during lecture hours (DD1, DD2, DD3),
help developing ability to make judgements, and improves communication skills (DD3, DD4).
