ESPB 6 Status elective
Condition Knowledge of mathematical analysis, complex analysis, theory of functions, combinatorial analysis
The goal Introducing students to orthogonal polynomials and Bessel functions and their applications in electronics, electromagnetics, telecommunications and quantum mechanics. We will study the linear and nonlinear differential equations
The outcome Train students to recognize and resolve problems from electrical engineering in which they appear Special functions and the corresponding differential equations as a mathematical model
Contents of lectures Orthogonal polynomials, Bessel functions and polynomials, hypergeometric functions, Laplace differential equation, Special numbers, Application in the combinatorial analysis
Contents of exercises Solving various problems and equations using special functions.
