Aims

For students who have studied engineering mathematics previously, to develop aware and confident users of numerical and analytical tools for:
-       introduction to mathematical modelling;
-       statistical methods for process control;
-       ordinary differential equation modelling;
-       operational research.

Outline Of Syllabus

1.       Introduction to mathematical modelling:
- Problem solving: expressing simple mathematical models eg ODE's, through software.
Introduction to optimization problems – linear programming.

2. Statistical methods for process control:
- Data Properties: probability, distributions, descriptive statistics, data
sampling and evaluation
- Statistical Inference: sampling distributions, confidence interval, measurement uncertainty
and manufacturing tolerancing, one and two sample problems.
- Regression analysis and ANOVA.

3. Vibration and control system analysis:
- Systems of linear equations (eigenvalues and eigenvectors).
- Phase-plane and stability (self-excitation).
- Laplace Transforms,Fourier series.
