|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject illustrates how partial differential equations (PDEs) of first and second order arise in mathematical modelling of the real world. It introduces basic techniques for solving these PDEs such as eigenfunction expansions, Green's functions, similarity solutions, method of images, and addresses general features of the solutions. The subject also covers certain topics in ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Topics covered include:
|Assessment:||A 45-minute written test held mid-semester (either 0% or 20%); a 3-hour written examination in the examination period (80% or 100%). The relative weighting of the examination and the mid-semester test will be chosen so as to maximise the student's final mark.|
|Breadth Options:||This subject is a level 2 or level 3 subject and is not available to new generation degree students as a breadth option in 2008. |
This subject or an equivalent will be available as breadth in the future.
Breadth subjects are currently being developed and these existing subject details can be used as guide to the type of options that might be available.
