Course content
- Systems of ordinary differential equations (ODE). Especially linear with constant coefficients. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors of matrices. Stability of the solution. - Numerical solution of Cauchy's problem for n-th order ODE and first-order systems in normal form (single- and multi-step methods). Numerical solution of boundary value problems for ordinary 2nd order differential equations, shooting method, boundary conditions method, finite difference method. - Interpolation and approximation. The least square method. Quadrature formulas. Numerical solution of systems of linear equations. - Partial Differential Equations (PDE). Boundary and mixed problem. Finite difference method. - Mathematical fundamentals of finite element method. Triangulation of the domain. Basic finite elements.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Self-study (text study, reading, problematic tasks, practical tasks, experiments, research, written assignments), Independent creative and artistic activities, Individual consultation, Seminár
Learning outcomes
