  • Overview

    This course is intended as the final 200-level subject in mathematics for the Bachelor of Engineering programme. It is also available as a terminating mathematics course for students majoring in other disciplines. Normally a student majoring in mathematics is not allowed to take this course and be counted towards his/her degree requirements. The course will involve computer laboratory sessions using Matlab and statistical software packages to provide students with an introduction to mathematical and statistical software and its application to engineering and related problems.
    Topics to be covered include: probability distributions and densities, expectation and moments, uncorrelatedness and independence, multivariate Gaussian density, stochastic processes, optimization methods, matrix algebra and analysis, Laplace transform, Fourier transform, and R-K methods.
