MATH19730 - part 2
- Title: Mathematics for Materials Science (1G2)
- Unit code: MATH19730 - part 2
- Credit rating: 10
- Level: 1
- Pre-requisite units: MATH19730 - part 1
- Co-requisite units:
- School responsible: Mathematics
- Member of staff responsible: Prof A Premet (Dr CDC Steele)
- The programme unit aims to Revise and extend the students' knowledge of probability/statistics, differentiation, integration and the solution of first-order differential equations of simple type. Strictly speaking, this is HALF of the 20-credit unit MATH19730
- Brief description
- 1 : Vectors : Scalar and Vector Products, normals to planes equations of planes and lines
- 2 : Complex Numbers addition, multiplication, division, Argand diagram, polar form, de Moivre's theorem, exp(i θ)
- 3 : Partial Differentiation : functions of two variables, stationary points (but no classification), functions of three variables, simple surfaces, normal to a surface (grad w)
- 4 : Matrices : linear equations written as Ax = b. Addition and multiplication of matrices, transposed, identity and zero matrices. Solutions of 3 x 3 sets of linear equations, inverse matrix, determinants, cofactors.
- 5 : Differential Equations : first order, separable, linear; second order linear with constant coefficients - complimentary functions and particular integrals.
- This unit shares many classes with MATH19740 - part 2. MATH19730 - part 2 is aimed at students who entered the university WITH A-level mathematics.

This is a first-year, second-semester module for students in Materials Science. There are two slightly different options available to students. Students from the first-semester module MATH19730 - part 1 take the module MATH19730 - part 2 and attend 3 classes (lectures/tutorials) per week. Students from the first semester course unit MATH19740 - part 1 take course unit MATH19740 - part 2 which involves an EXTRA class per week
