Learning Outcomes

Learning outcomes

The course is an introduction to the basic analytic and numerical methods of Mathematical Physics. The objectives of the course are:

  • Development of the theoretical background in matters relating to mathematical physics.
  • Ability of the student to apply the basic concepts of mathematical physics.
  • Upon completion of this course the student will be able to solve with analytical and approximate mathematical methods simple problems of mathematical physics and deepen further understanding of such methods.
General Competences

The course aims to enable the undergraduate students to develop basic knowledge of Mathematical Physics and in general of Applied Mathematics. The student will be able to cope with problems of Applied Mathematics giving the opportunity to work in an international multidisciplinary environment.


Short introduction of linear vector spaces, Vector spaces of infinite dimensions, The Sturm-Liouville problem, Orthogonal polynomials and special functions, Multi-dimensional problems, Operator Theory, Applications in modern Physics.
