Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
All courses are expressed in the mathematical language typical of physics: differential calculus in one and several variables, complex numbers, algebra and statistics. They also include basic and advanced concepts of modern Physics (Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Electromagnetism and Quantum Mechanics). Elliptic problems; fluid motion at low Reynolds number; Stoke flows; parabolic problems; porous media and lubrication; hyperbolic problems; fluid motion at high Reynolds number; Euler equations; accoustics; asymptotic techniques; stability; ideal MHD; Grad-Shafranov equation.

The course syllabus may change due academic events or other reasons.
