MATH 46 Introduction to Applied Mathematics

Develops tools to analyze phenomena in the physical and life sciences, from cell aggregation to vibrating drums to traffic jams. Focus is on applied linear and nonlinear partial differential equations: methods for Laplace, heat and wave equations (Fourier transform, Green's functions, eigenfunction expansions), Burger's and reaction-diffusion equation. Further topics may include linear and integral operators, nonlinear optimization, linear programming, asymptotics, boundary layers, or inverse problems. Students will develop numerical skills with a package like MATLAB/Octave.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
