Bifurcation Theory (Summer Semester 2017)

Lecturer: Dr. Rainer Mandel
Classes: Lecture (0102000), Problem class (0102010)
Weekly hours: 2+2


This lecture is intended to give an introduction to bifurcation theory with applications in ordinary and partial differential equations. It is suitable for students with knowledge covered by one of the lectures Functional analysis or Boundary and Eigenvalue Problems or similar advanced courses in analysis. The course is open to both Bachelor and Master students.

The first lecture is on Tuesday, April 25th.
The first exercise session is on Wednesday, April 26th.

Exercise sheets will appear on a weekly basis, the first one will be handed out on Wednesday, April 26th. The exercise sheet may be returned for correction, but there is no obligation to do so.
