Objectives of the course
This course gives the students the basic mathematical tools required to study subjects with a scientific and statistic content. Using mathematics and statistics, the students are enabled to solve problems in a logic and exact way. Besides lectures, practicals are arranged. The professor provides the students with lecture notes.

This course also gives the students the main tools to understand mechanics and the skills to apply mathematical abstract models and concepts to real scientific problems.
