I was wondering, and I think this will be useful to many offer-holders on this forum beside me : how important is it to already have studied the mathematical content in your courses a bit ? Of course I mean stuff which isn't obvious, if I didn't know how to do x² equations I wouldn't have applied in the first place. But for example I've done matrixes, but not scalar whatevers (some of my friends have) nor differential equations. Does that mean I'll have pbs ? Or will they just walk us through new stuff, and we learn as we go along ? How do they manage to deal with the different levels of knowledge of students from all over the world ?
