Risultati di apprendimento attesi

At the end of the course the student is expected to:

1. know the basic theory of Hilbertian Sobolev spaces: density and approximation by smooth functions, traces, compactness, embeddings, Bochner integral. The theory at the base of finite elements methods and the spectral properties and the alternative for general bilinear forms in Hilbert spaces. The most important fixed point theorems. The adjoint and the multiplier method for the optimization and control of quadratic functionals in Hilbert spaces. The basic theory of 1-d systems of conservation laws. 

2. be able to derive the variational formulation of the most common boundary and initial boundary value problems for stationary and evolutive PDEs and analyze their well-posedness. To apply the fixed point method to nonlinear equations like the stationary Navier-Stokes system or rather general semilinear equations. To analyze and solve quadratic control problems governed by elliptic equations, interpreting the results in terms of projections and computing the gradient of the functional. Explain the construction of rarefaction and shock waves for 1-d systems of conservation laws. Solve the Riemann problem for the p-system.

Modalità di valutazione
Written examination: to the student it is required to solve problems concerning boundary value problems, control problems and nonlinear equations via fixed point methods. Highly insufficient grades (<12/30) in the written examination are invited to skip the oral discussion.
Oral discussion on the whole program: the student must be able to explain the main concepts and prove the main results with property of language.
There is a mid-term written examination on parts 1,2,3 of the program with the aim of monitoring the preparation state of the class.
