PHYS 229 Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering
Topics may include: Laplace transform and applications; series solution of differential equations, Bessel's equation, Legendre's equation, and special functions; matrices, eigenvalues and eigenfunctions; vector analysis and applications; boundary value programs and spectral representations; Fourier series and Fourier integrals; and solution of partial differential equations of mathematical physics.
Three lectures per week.
Prerequisite(s): MATH 224 Differential Equations or permission of the instructor.
A study of ordinary differential equations. Topics include first and higher order, and linear and nonlinear differential equations with applications. Additional topics may be chosen from systems of differential equations, transform techniques, and numerical methods. Use will be made of a computer algebra system.
Prerequisite(s): Grade of "C" or better in MATH 106 Calculus II.
(Normally offered each spring semester.)
