Advanced Topics in Applied Mathematics KMA455

Introduction

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.

Note

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.
