Learning objectives
To provide students with the capacity of comprehending the major processes occurring in our planet from the physico-mathematical perspective. In order to score this target, the formulation of continuum mechanics is the most advanced, deeply a mathematical one. The physical processes over which attention is focused are relative to the crust and Earth's mantle and those responsible for the structure of the oceanic lithosphere and subduction. Major attention is also devoted to the most relevant processes in the field of the Earth's gravity.
Expected learning outcomes
Acquiring capabilities in the mathematical and physical modelling of the processes occurring on the surface of the Earth and in its interior, in a modern and advanced fashion, in order to allow the students to compete in the labour market with a solid know-how, representing a solid basis also in the field of applications for informatics and computer science.
