Module summaryThis module builds on the material of MATH1010 (Mathematics 1) in introducing fundamental areas of mathematics. Calculus is extended to functions of several variables. Further topics in linear algebra are developed, introducing concepts such as basis, dimension, eigenvectors. The study of ordinary differential equations is continued and extended to higher order equations and systems of differential equations. These fundamental techniques in applied mathematics will be applied to problems in Newtonian mechanics, which will serve as the main example of how mathematics is used to describe the physical world.
ObjectivesOn completion of this module, students should:
- be able to derive and solve ordinary differential equations arising in applications, for example in the study of oscillators;
- model mechanical problems in both Cartesian and polar coordinate systems;
- solve problems based on Newton's Laws via principles of Work, Energy and Momentum;
- understand properties of linear algebra such as linear dependence, kernel, range and basis;
- be comfortable solving first order ordinary differential equations by a variety of methods;
- be able to compute eigenvalues and eigenvectors of matrices;
- be able to diagonalise matrices and perform a change of variables.
- Review of vectors and matrices. Subspaces, bases and dimensions.
- Linear combinations and dependence. Kernel and range.
- Eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Diagonalisation.
- Introduction to ordinary differential equations. Solution of 1st order ODEs.
- Basic kinematics, phase space. Newton's laws of motion, forces (gravity, springs, viscous drag). Harmonic oscillator.
- Linear second order equations, supposition of solutions. Constant coefficient homogeneous differential equations.
- Undamped and damped harmonic oscillators. Phase portraits.
- Oscillators with external forcing. Inhomogeneous differential equations. Particular integrals.
- Forced oscillations and resonance. Impulse.
- Energy and work. Kinetic energy, potential energy, conservative and dissipative forces.
- Newton's law of gravitation. Circular motion. Polar coordinates. Angular velocity and momentum.
- Pendulums. Phase portraits.
