Aims

The unit aims to:   provide the background mathematics and IT skills required for subsequent chemical engineering courses in mathematically oriented topics.  Engineering applications are to be introduced where relevant.

Overview

 

Matrices and algebraic properties. Definition of determinant and properties. Identity, diagonal, transpose, upper/lower triangular and inverse matrices.

 

Solving systems of linear equations through Gaussian Elimination. Solving systems of nonlinear equations using the Newton-Raphson method.

 

First order ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Analytical solution by separation of variables and by the integrating factor.

 

Laplace transforms. Transforms and inverse transforms of functions. Transforms of derivatives. Application to solution of ordinary differential equations.

 

Numerical solution of ODEs and systems of ODEs using Euler and Runge-Kutta Methods.

 

Teaching and learning methods

 This course will consist of lectures (2 hours) and enquiry-based learning sessions (1 hour). Resources with be available electronically on Blackboard and/or the course webpage.
