Introduction asymptotic techniques

Course

Description

A model is the explicit formulation of the way we see reality. A good model comprises only relevant effects. These are usually the (relatively) large-scale phenomena, but typical of multiscale problems is that small effects still can be important. Essential for the course is therefore understanding and appreciation of scales and the effects of small parameters. The calculus of small parameters is called asymptotics, while perturbation methods relate to modelling with small parameters
