School or Department : Maths and Computing
Version produced : 30 December 2013

Requisites

Pre-requisite: MAT2100 or MAT2500

Synopsis

The course uses mathematical tools introduced in pre-requisite studies to model a variety of realistic phenomena surrounding us in everyday life and introduces calculus of variations for optimisation problems. The course emphasises the importance of the dimensional analysis and demonstrates the close connection between phase-plane concept and qualitative analysis of solutions of ODE. The basics of technical communication in the mathematical sciences are developed throughout the course. This course is offered only in even-numbered years.
