A mathematical model of changing the amount of information in the abstract human memory is proposed in the presence of the subsequent "external discrete" training (filling the information). Under this model, the amount of information is a solution of impulsive differential equation with fixed moments of impulsive effects and variable structure. Suf...

Discontinuous systems of nonlinear non-autonomous differential equations with impulsive effects are the main object of investigation in the paper. These systems consist of two basic parts: (i) A set of non-linear non- autonomous systems of ordinary differential equations that define the con- tinuous parts of the solutions. The right-hand sides of t...

Determination and establishment of the students’ knowledge and skills in mathematics is an
important task not only for the lecturers but also for the learners. The authors examine the role and results of
one diagnostic test used before the topic of differential calculus in three technical universities. Interpretation of
the results and timely adequ...

Autonomous systems of differential equations with variable struc- ture and impulsive effects are the main objects of our study. The structure changes and the impulsive effects realize at the switching moments, which are specific to each different solution of the system. In these moments, the trajec- tory of the corresponding initial value problem m...

The authors focus their attention on mathematics education of the students at three Engineering Universities in Mongolia and Bulgaria where mathematics teaching is done in a foreign language. A survey (Likert-type scale) with five possible answers with 99 second course students has been done and the individual conversations with some of them have b...

Nonlinear non autonomous differential equations with impulsive effects at the arbitrary impulsive moments are considered in the paper. Sufficient conditions on the stability of nonzero solutions of these equations in respect to the initial condition, right hand side and impulsive effects are found.

We consider a generalized version of the classical Lotka Volterra model with differential equations. The version has a variable structure (discontinuous right hand side) and the solutions are subjected to the discrete impulsive effects. The moments of right hand side discontinuity and the moments of impulsive effects coincide and they are specific...

The initial value problems for autonomous systems of differential equations are the subject of this paper. In the phase space of such system is defined the so-called reachable set and a function of reachability is introduced. For each starting point x0, there is a corresponding function value which is equal to the time necessary to pass from x0 to...

The differential equations with impulses are main object of investigation. We consider the case when the impulsive moments are random. The concept of continuous dependence of the solutions of such equations on the initial condition is introduced. The conditions are found which ensure this quality of the solutions.

Curves given in a parametric form are studied in this paper. Curves are continuous on the left in the general case. Their corresponding parameters belong to the definitional intervals which is possible to not coincide for the different curves. Moreover, the points of discontinuity (if they exist) are first kind (jump discontinuity) and they are spe...

The main object of investigation is one class of nonlinear autonomous dif- ferential equations with non-fixed moments of impulsive e ects. The impulsive moments coincide with moments, at which the integral curve meets the so-called "barrier set", sit- uated in the extended phase space. This set coincides with the "barrier straight line", parallel t...

Mathematical information could be set in different ways – verbally (written or oral), graphically , using symbols or numerical data. One of the goals of mathematical education is a suitable combination of different representations of mathematical information for the deeper understanding of new concepts and procedures. The other goal is to teach stu...

domains which are generally different for the non-coinciding curves. Furthermore,
the points of discontinuity ( if the exist) are jump points and specific to each curve.
The upper estimate of Hausdorf...

are introduced orbital gravitation and orbital Hausdorff stability of the trajectories of this model. Under natural
assumptions, it is showed that Lotka-Volterra model possesses these properties.

The transition from the secondary school to the university has been always a problem period, linked to the various changes and difficulties for the most first year students in different universities. Lack of experience of self-training and weak knowledge base and skills of the students on one hand, and the higher level of mathematics and new organi...

There exists a great variety of quantum distribution functions in phase space that are widely used in many branches of quantum physics. The Kirkwood distribution function turned out to be a generating function for almost all of them. It is also known as Terletsky or Rihaczek quasi-probability. The goal of the work is to present some computer based...

Част от студентите в техническите университети имат трудности с усвояване на учебния материал по ВМ, както и с неговото прилагане в инженерните дисциплини, което поставя за обсъждане редица въпроси:
- Преподавателите имат ли информация за нивото на реалните знания по математика на новоприетите студенти.
- Нашите студенти имат ли реална самооценка за своите знания.
- Запознати ли са първокурсниците с нивото знания и умения, които са необходими за успешно овладяване на новия материал.
- Обучаемите имат ли създадени навици студентите да учат – самостоятелно или в екип.
Основният въпрос, поставен за изследване е разработване на процедура за адекватна помощ в зависимост от конкретните проблеми на нашите студенти.
Диагностичният тест има ориентировъчна роля на „моментна снимка“ на текущите знания и умения на студентите като необходима база за надграждане. Тази информация е необходима както на преподавателите за по-добра организация на учебните часове, за реализиране на успешен индивидуален подход в зависимост от конкретните проблеми на обучаемите, така и на студентите за необходимата им допълнителна подготовка. Организацията, етапите, съдържанието на този труден процес на ПОДПОМАГАНЕ в ДВИЖЕНИЕ поставя за обсъждане много въпроси:
- Определяне на студентите с рискови знания.
- Организиране на конкретните помощни занятия чрез
- създаване на подходящи учебни материали за ползване в сайта на съответния факултет;
- съчетаване на самостоятелна подготовка и работа в екип;
- възползване от възможностите на съвременния компютърен софтуер, уеб базирани и интерактивни приложения за придаване на нов смисъл на целия обучителен процес;
- привличане и подготовка на добри преподаватели и непрекъснато повишаване на тяхната квалификация и др

1. Да се проучи организацията на учебния процес в Технически Университет – София, ХТМУ – София и МУСТ Улан Батор, Монголия и нейното отражение върху успеваемостта на студентите. Резултатите ще бъдат получени чрез сравнителен анализ на официалните учебни планове и програми по висша математика, провеждане на анкети и индивидуални разговори със студенти от първи и втори курс в трите университета.
2. Да се класифицират типовете грешки (технически, изчислителни, логически), които анкетираните студенти допускат при решаване на задачи по математика. Резултатите ще се базират на тест от задачи от застъпения в програмите базов учебен материал.
3. Да се предложи комплекс от мерки, които ще спомогнат за преодоляване на установените проблеми на студентите. Да се обсъдят и евентуално експериментират съвременни успешни практики за организация на учебния процес, за провеждане на изпити и за оценяване на знанията в съответствие със стандартите във висшето техническо образование, разработени и контролирани от професионални организации в Европейския съюз и извън него.
