Students obtain advanced knowledge in analytical mathematical methods for physics and engineering and acquire the practical skills to apply these methods to solve practical problems in physics and engineering. In particular, students learn to formulate physical problems in a mathematically rigid way, which enables them to find solutions to difficult physical problems using analytic methods. This way, students acquire the mathematical foundations for mastering advanced courses in the various specializations of their respective degree programs.


The course covers classical advanced analytic mathematics, in particular complex analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations, and integral transformations, such as Fourier and Laplace transforms. The theoretical background is covered in the lecture, which is used in the tutorials to prepare students for solving practical problems from physics and engineering, e.g., from Mechanics, Electrodynamics, Quantum Mechanics and Acoustics.
