The aims of this module are to:
To give students advanced mathematical tools common to engineering applications.
To demonstrate the physical origin of applied mathematics.
To understand the basic concepts in vector analysis, complex functions and Laplace transforms
To be familiar with the equations of importance to engineering and science and their properties.
To train the students' ability to think logically and independently and to acquire the skills of problem solving.
On successful completion of the module, the student is expected to have:
A good understanding of the basics concepts of:
A. Complex functions and their integrals.
B. Laplace transforms.
C. Series solutions of ODEs.
D. Be able to solve problem by establishing appropriate mathematical models using the most relevant techniques.
E. Have an appreciation of the importance of mathematics to engineering and science.
This module will be delivered by a combination of formal lectures, problem classes, case studies and revision seminars.
