Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The following topics will be clarified from a theoretical point of view and illustrated by typical examples: sine and cosine oscillations, rotating circle, phase, period, frequency, wavelength, time, Fourier series, approximating oscillations, estimating Fourier coefficients, oscillators (in particluar, the harmonic oscillator), a representation of oscillations by differential equations, resonance, reversibility vs. irreversibility, wave, phase space, predator-prey relationship, parasite-host interaction, competition, hysteresis.

Assessment and permitted materials

either continuos assessment of participation (in particular, the discussion during lecturing) or oral examination
