Applied Mathematics Department is a division of the Faculty of Physical Engineering of National Technical University “Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute”, Kharkov, Ukraine.

u2Primarily, the Department’s activity is concentrated on teaching higher mathematics to students of the following faculties: Physical Engineering Faculty, Integrated Technologies and Chemical Engineering Faculty, Mechanics and Technology Faculty, German Technical Faculty, Organic Substances Technology Faculty, Applied Physics Faculty, Power Engineering Faculty, Military Training Faculty, Business and Finances Faculty. The following courses are taught: the general course of higher mathematics and some special courses as well – linear algebra, theory of functions of complex variable, variational calculus, functional analysis, mathematical physics, probability theory and mathematical statistics etc. Many of these disciplines are taught in English and corresponding textbooks written in English are available.

Another important kind of activity is a scientific study. There are two principal directions of scientific investigations of the department:

  • The first one refers to methods of solution of plates and shells theory problems by means of the R-functions theory. Investigations of this kind are performed by the Head of the Department Prof. L. Kurpa and her followers.
  • The second one refers to problems of regular and chaotic mechanics of non-linear systems, in particular, to the nonlinear normal modes theory, problems of stability of motion, problems of vibration damping, problems of vibro-impact oscillations, etc. These investigations are performed by Prof. Yu.Mikhlin and the Non-linear Dynamics Research Group.
