This will introduce honours level students to advanced topics in applied mathematics. The topics may vary from year to year depending on student interest and staff availability.
Possible topics include:
* Solution of systems of ordinary and partial differential equations (ODEs and PDEs);
* Perturbation methods;
* Asymptotic methods;
* Transform theory.
This unit is an optional unit for students enrolled in Honours Mathematics, Statistics, or Physics, or by permission of the Unit Coordinator.
|Unit name||Advanced Topics in Applied Mathematics|
|College/School||College of Sciences and Engineering
School of Natural Sciences
|Coordinator||Professor Andrew Bassom|
|Delivered By||University of Tasmania|
|Location||Study period||Attendance options||Available to|
- International students
- Domestic students
Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
|Study Period||Start date||Census date||WW date||End date|
* 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 (refer to How do I withdraw from a unit? for more information).
Unit census dates currently displaying for 2023 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2023 will be available from the 1st October 2022. Note census date cutoff is 11.59pm AEST (AEDT during October to March).
- Apply advanced tools of applied mathematics, such as transforms and perturbations, to the numerical and analytical solution of ODEs and PDEs.
- Explain the proofs and implications of major theorems in applied mathematics.
- Clearly communicate the concepts and results of applied mathematics to an audience of peers using appropriate language and notation.
