Mathematical Methods for Physics

Course Number: 
Minimum Credits: 
A course designed to integrate mathematics into a coherent foundation for problem solving for upper-level physics and engineering courses. Topics include Laplace and Fourier transformations, Fourier series, vector operators, ordinary and partial differential equations, and orthogonal functions. Emphasis is given to the solution (analytical and numerical) of problems from both physics and engineering. Completion of the course allows the student to define important aspects of each mathematical topic, to describe the relevance of each topic to physics and engineering problems, and to work both formal and physics/engineering problems involving each topic. Prerequisite: MTH-236. (Cross-referenced with PHY-435.)
