The mathematical principles of linear and non-linear dynamics will be provided. Hence the students shall be in the position to discuss the quantitative and qualitative behaviour of dynamics, which represents a crucial competence for recent topics (chaos, self-similarity etc.).

Fundamentals according to Mathematik-Grundlagen (NET-1.02), Softwaregestützte Mathematik (NET-2.02) and Mathematische Simulation (NET-3.03).

We focus on mathematical topics which play an important role in communication engineering. The topics will be discussed under the analytical and numerical point of view. We put emphasis on the implementation of numerical concepts, numerical experiments and the interpretation of accordingly achieved results.
