Nonlinear ordinary differential equations: perturbation methods & applications - Dottorato in TECNOLOGIE DELL'INFORMAZIONE E DELLE COMUNICAZIONI (ICT) (A.A. 2021-2022)
Master Course Seminars A.A. 2021/22 (4 hours):
tools to solve nonlinear problems
Instructor: Sandra Carillo
Dipartimento di Scienze di Base e Applicate per l’Ingegneria
Seminars Description: The aim of these Seminars is to provide some ideas on methods to study
nonlinear problems modelled via nonlinear ordinary differential equations. Specifically, a brief
overview on ad hoc methods developed when a small parameter appears is given. T
he examples of weakly damped oscillator (toy problem) and the physical pendulum are considered
to illustrate the methods.
Monday March 21, 17.30 -19.30
Monday March 28, 17.30 -19.30
The arguments can be schematically listed in:
- Qualitative methods: an introduction.
- Straightforward Perturbation Method.
- Multiple Scale Method.
The results are visualised via computer algebra manipulation (MATLAB’ Tollbox).
