- Unit code: MATH19682
- Credit rating: 10
- Level: 1
- Pre-requisite units: Mathematics 1E1 (MATH19681).
- Co-requisite units: None
- School responsible: Mathematics
- Member of staff responsible: Dr CDC Steele, Prof JSB Gajjar, Dr D Harris
- The programme unit aims to provide a second semester course in calculus and algebra to students in school of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the school of Chemistry.
- Brief description
- 4 lectures: Integration : Working definition of the integral. Fundamental theorem of calculus Physical interpretation. Definite integrals and areas under curves. Revision of integration techniques (polynomials etc). Integration by parts, by substitution and by partial fractions. (partial fractions themselves part of followup). Applications of integration. (this topic follows on from the 3 lectures from 1E1).
- 2 lectures : Series : Simple Series : convergence of geometric series : Maclaurin and Taylor Series
- 8 lectures : Multivariate Calculus : Functions of two or more variables. Partial Differentiation. Gradient. Chain Rule. Multiple integration and line integration. Taylor Series in two variables. Maxima and minima in two dimensions.
- 8 lectures: Ordinary Differential Equations : Concept, order and role of conditions. 1st order linear equations with constant coefficients (Emphasizing a complementary function / particular integral approach but making mention of integrating factors. Natural and Forced response (including the case of resonance). 2nd order linear equations with constant coefficients, characteristic polynomials. Mathematical and physical interpretation of solutions (time-constant etc).
