Learning objectives

  • Gaining insight into the concepts and methods of classical analytical and numerical modeling techniques;

  • Training and enhancing the modeling ability;

  • Application of advanced mathematical and numerical methods to physical systems.

Content
The course illustrates the steps towards the definition of analytical and numerical models for physical phenomena. Few outstanding examples are discussed in the context of classical problems from Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Statistical Physics, Classical Mechanics, Chaos Theory or Quantum Physics.

The course covers models with relevance for a broad range of physical problems and presents standard methodologies for solving the analytical and numerical models discussed.

  • Partial differential equations;

  • Classical analytical modelling techniques

  • Particle based methods:

  • Langevin and Fokker-Planck equations;

  • Variational methods;

  • Numerical modelling.
