MAE 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, and Stokes theorem, and various applications. Partial differential equations that govern physical phenomena in science and engineering. Solution of partial differential equations by separation by variables, superposition, Fourier series, variation of parameter, d'Alembert's solution. Eigenfunction expansion techniques for non-homogeneous initial-value, boundary-value problems. Particular focus on various physical applications of the heat equation, the potential (Laplace) equation, and the wave equations in rectangular, cylindrical, and spherical coordinates. Cross-listed as APMA 6410.
