The course will be split in two parts. The first one will deal with the theory and will follow the plan above. This part will be taught by Prof. Alessandrini and will be completed by some exercise sessions where students will be asked to solve problems which, in turn, should allow to strengthen their understanding of the theory. The second part, running in parellel, will involve external speakers from the practice and will try to give a practical view on the concepts learned in the theoretical part of the course.
