## Teaching methods

During the lectures will be offered arguments, with by examples and applications.

## Assessment methods and criteria

The examination consists of an interview aimed

to assess the level of knowledge and understanding acquired on the topics of teaching, and the student's ability to present them in such a way

mathematically correct and to communicate them to others. The final evaluation

is expressed by a single vote for the examination as a whole.
