EDCE courses spring 2019

Fourier analysis and boundary value problems ENV- 614 – 4 credits
Andrea Rinaldo
Wednesdays 10h15 – 12h00

SUMMARY
Learning Fourier Series and Boundary Value Problems with a view to a variety of science and engineering problems. Learn the use of special functions like Bessel functions and applications. Introduce the doctoral students to general Sturm-Liouville problems and applications.

Selected Topics on Advanced Composites in Engineering Structures CIVIL-705 – 2 credits
Thomas Keller
Anastasios Vassilopoulos
Tuesdays 2x/month 14h15-17h00

SUMMARY
The course focuses on the current investigations in the fields of fatigue and fracture of composite materials and composite structural components, like adhesively-bonded joints. Students would be able to develop design concepts for composite structures under realistic loading conditions.

Optimization and simulation Math-600 – 4 credits
Michel Bierlaire
Tuesdays 13h15-17h, ROOM: on 19/2, 26/02, 05/03 and 02/04 MED 2 1124, otherwise GR C0 01. On Tuesday (19.02 to 28.05)

SUMMARY
Master state-of-the art methods in discrete optimization and simulation. Work involves: – reading the material beforehand – class hours to discuss the material and solve problems – homework.

Models for applied environmental economic Env – 723 – 1 credit
Frank Vöhringer
Thursdays March – May 13h15 – 16h

SUMMARY
Mainly based on the discussion of peer reviewed academic papers, the course introduces non economists to the main types of applied models used in environmental economic analysis: linear programming, partial and general equilibrium, game theory, and agent based models
