The mathematical techniques for flow computation and the theory of asymptotic expansions for differential equations are provided and analysed. In particular, the following topics are covered:
  • regular and singular disturbed problems,
  • scaling,
  • multi-scale expansions,
  • boundary layers for differential equations.


  • G. I. Barenblatt: Scaling,
  • N. G. De Bruijn: Asymptotic methods in analysis,
  • M. H. Holmes: Introduction to perturbation methods,
  • U. Hornung: Homogenization and porous media,
  • J. K. Hunter: Asymptotic analysis and singular perturbation theory (Lecture Notes).


Further literature will be announced in the lecture.
