This subject introduces important mathematical concepts required in engineering. Students should develop an ability to apply vector space methods to the study of linear algebraic equations and linear transformations. Students will also learn to formulate and solve a range of decision-making problems by well-known algorithms. Students will develop an ability to solve linear and nonlinear difference equations. Students will develop an ability to use statistical methods to analyse empirical data. Students will gain experience in using a mathematical software system.
Topics include vector spaces, linear systems of equations, matrix methods; networks, linear and integer programming, difference equations; and probability distributions, random variables hypothesis testing, linear regression.
|Objectives:||See subject overview|
Up to 24 pages of written assignments (20%), a mid-semester test (10%) and a 3-hour end-of-semester written examination (70%).
