|Evaluation:||The presentation and discussion of the theoretical aspects of the syllabus relies on power point presentations and occurs in the first part of each class. It is followed by the practical approach of each issue, which comprises the resolution of a set of problems previously selected from the bibliographic references. Students are supposed to complete 10 exercises and 2 written tests. The 8 highest grades of the exercises have a 30% contribution to the final grade whereas the mean of the tests’ grades contributes with 70%. Alternatively, a final exam is also available.|
