This subject introduces important mathematical methods required in engineering such as manipulating vector differential operators, computing multiple integrals and using integral theorems. A range of ordinary and partial differential equations are solved by a variety of methods and their solution behaviour is interpreted. The subject also introduces sequences and series including the concepts of convergence and divergence.
Topics include: Vector calculus, including Green’s and Stokes’ Theorems; sequences and series; Fourier series, Laplace transforms, including convolution; systems of homogeneous ordinary differential equations, including phase plane and linearization for nonlinear systems; first order and second order partial differential equations, including characteristics, fans, shocks, D’Alembert’s solution and separation of variables.
At the completion of this subject, students should be able to
Up to 50 pages of written assignments 20% (due during semester), a 3-hour written examination 80% (in the examination period).
