Bifurcation Theory (Winter Semester 2022/23)
- Lecturer: PD Dr. Rainer Mandel
- Classes: Lecture (0108000), Problem class (0108010)
- 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. The course is open to both Bachelor and Master students.
The first lecture is on Friday, October 28th, 2022.
