APMA 6410 - Engineering Mathematics I

Review of ordinary differential equations. Initial value problems, boundary value problems, and various physical applications. Linear algebra, including systems of linear equations, matrices, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, diagonalization, and various applications. Scalar and vector field theory, including the divergence theorem, Green’s theorem, Stokes theorem, and various applications. Partial differential equations that govern physical phenomena in science and engineering. Solution of partial differential equations by separation of variables, superposition, Fourier series, variation of parameters, d’ Alembert’s solution. Eigenfunction expansion techniques for nonhomogeneous initial-value, boundary-value problems. Particular focus on various physical applications of the heat equation, the potential (Laplace) equation, and the wave equation in rectangular, cylindrical, and spherical coordinates. Cross-listed as MAE 6410. Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
