Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks This lab course is aimed to give the students an introduction to some important concepts used in the field of nonlinear dynamics. With a simple set-up using a number of conventional metronomes, the phenomenon of synchronization is illustrated and investigated. The computational approach in the second part of the lab course allows the students to learn about the topic even further.
