Summary

The course is offered throughout the university. Within the course the students are introduced into weak formulations of various kinds of elliptic boundary value problems, solvability conditions as well as fundamental properties of the weak solutions. The correct understanding of these notions is necessary to succeed with solution of various engineering problems.
