Course objectives
The course is focused on systems of non-linear differential equations with the Carathéodory right-hand side. The following questions are studied in detail: the existence of solutions of the Cauchy problem; the extendibility of solutions; and the existence of global solutions.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students will be able to:
define and interpret the basic notions used in the mentioned fields;
formulate relevant mathematical theorems and statements and to explain methods of their proofs;
use effective techniques utilized in the subject areas;
analyse selected problems from the topics of the course.
