The subject is focused on the development of the mathematical models of important physical and chemical processes occurring in materials. The models are developed using the approach based on experimental design in combination with regression analysis. Emphasis is put on detailed statistical analysis of experimental data and the developed models. The models are used for the optimization of the composition of materials with target properties. By applying numerical methods, physic-chemical processes are solved that are described by ordinary and partial differential equations.

The subject teaching method is based on solving of practical material problems specially selected for particular topics. The problems are focused on the real development of new materials with advanced properties. In seminars, we broadly discus the solution of these problems and their modifications to deeper understand the presented topics.
