Aims

To provide the Stage 1 mathematical knowledge and skills base for the various undergraduate engineering programmes in the faculty. This module begins with a review of methods of calculus including illustrations of such methods in engineering. These ideas are developed to enable a large range of engineering systems to be modelled using differential equations and linear algebra.

Outline Of Syllabus

Functions, differentiation and integration. Exponential, logarithmic and hyperbolic funtions. Complex numbers, Cartesian and polar forms. Trigonometric functions and inverse functions. Partial differentiation. Techniques of integration and numerical integration. Applications. Basic types of first and second order ordinary differential equations. Analytical methods of solution. Linked systems. Matrix and vector algebra. Solution methods for systems of linear equations. Eigenvalue problems.
