Calculus of Several Variables JEE235


This unit builds on foundations laid in first year core units Mathematics I and II giving extensive treatment of some of the more advanced areas of mathematics that have applications in engineering, particularly as tools for computer-based modelling, analysis and design related to heat and fluid flow. The unit aims to present students with methods for translating real engineering problems into mathematical form and guide them in developing mathematical techniques for the solution of such problems.

The unit is split into two sections: section one will cover solving ordinary & partial differential equations using methods such as Laplace transforms, Fourier series, and the method of separation of variables; section two will cover differential and integral vector calculus methods.

Units are offered as On-campus where the majority of teaching will occur at the campus identified.  Units offered Off-campus generally have no requirement for attendance at a physical university campus unless the unit has practical or fieldwork components*:  the campus indicated for an Off-Campus unit is the one at which teaching is administered from.

*Please read the Unit Introduction in the Course and Unit Handbook for attendance requirements for units offered in Off-campus mode.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (see withdrawal dates explained for more information).

Unit census dates currently displaying for 2017 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2017 will be available from the 1st October 2016.
