Ablauf der LV bei eingeschränktem Campusbetrieb

In case of limited activity on campus the course will take place via Rotation Mode.

Inhalte der LV

Review of results on Optimization; Static Optimization; Dynamical Systems; Dynamic Optimization.

Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

The course provides mathematical techniques to undestand and apply results on analysis, optimization and differential equations with focus on dynamic optimization.

Regelung zur Anwesenheit

For this lecture participation is obligatory. Students are allowed to miss a maximum of 20% (no matter if excused or not excused).


The class is taught as a lecture accompanied with homework assignments. The lectures are aimed at providing the theoretical framework, while miniexams check the study progress.

Leistung(en) für eine Beurteilung

  • 20% presentation of worked examples
  • 40% homework and discussion of results
  • 40% written endterm exam

For the written final exam the assessment will be based on the ability to describe and apply the key concepts discussed throughout the course and to choose the appropriate analytical techniques to obtain the relevant information. The  endterm exam cannot be retaken. Students need to get at least 50% of the possible points to pass this course.
