Prerequisites:

Basic courses in Mathematical Analysis, Linear Algebra, Geometry,
Analytic Mechanics (Newton's equation, conservative force fields, potential energy, Lagrangian Mechanics). 
Target skills and knowledge:

Objectives: Introduce the students to mathematical tools in continuum mechanics and dynamical systems.
Outcomes: a student who has met the objectives of the course will have a knowledge of :
• advanced topics in the mathematical description of continuous mechanics
• fundamentals of ODEs and dynamical systems, with special emphasis on applications 
Examination methods:

Final examination based on: Written and oral examinations
on both moduli CONTINUUM MECHANICS (MOD. A) and
DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS (MOD. B).
The final evaluation will be the weighted average of the evaluations obtained in the two moduli.
