2. Objectives and learning outcomes
2.1 Objectives
The aim of the subject is to give mathematical formulation for concepts widely used in engineering, more specifically, in structural analysis: proving the existence and uniqueness of solutions to problems that are intuitively accepted in the procedure of the design.
2.2 Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject, the student:
A. Knowledge
  1. knows the definitions of some basic mathematical concepts (linear space, operator, norm, convergence, distribution, boundary value problem).
B. Skills
  1. is able to identify mathematical structures beyond engineering problems,
  2. is able to use the concepts of strong and weak solutions to a BVP in structural analysis,
  3. is able to consider mechanical problems in an abstract approach.
C. Attitudes
  1. aims at strict logical problem-solving.
D. Autonomy and Responsibility
  1. is able to individually think over boundary value problems.
2.3 Methods
1. Lectures with theoretical knowledge and computational examples
