The course consists of a detailed description of continuous and discrete dynamical systems. We shall combine the introduction to the general theory with the consideration of bifurcations and chaos, the most important subtopics. The analysis of appropriate mechanical, physical, economic and biological models is an essential part of almost every lecture of the course. To support the course numerical and computational toolbox will be used.

This course is about densities. In the history of science, the concept of densities emerged only recently as attempts were made to provide unifying descriptions of phenomena that appeared to be statistical in nature. In view of the formal developments of probability and statistics, we have come to associate the appearance of densities with the description of large systems containing inherent elements of uncertainty. The aim of this course is to introduce the students into the theory of Markov operators, ergodic theory, and their applications to study of chaotic dynamical systems.

The focus of this course is on model order reduction methods for large-scale systems,which arise when partial differential equations are solved using numerical methods such as the finite element methods. Model order reduction techniques such as proper orthogonal decomposition and reduced basis provide an efficient and reliable way of solving these problems in the many-query or real-time context,such as optimization, characterization, and control.
