This module is not approved as a discovery module
ObjectivesThe aim of the module is to provide sufficient mathematical background knowledge to support the understanding of the various Engineering disciplines taught across SCAPE.
At the end of the module students should:
- Have a knowledge of advanced mathematical techniques to enable study in numerate engineering subjects such as heat transfer, fluid dynamics and thermodynamics.
- Have basic skills in statistics and numerical methods.
- Further develop problem solving skills.
- Power series and applications
- Fourier series
- Review of vectors, matrices and determinates
- Concepts of vector calculus
- Applications of vector calculus to fluid dynamics and heat transfer
Statistics - Revision of basic concepts; Discrete distributions: the binomial distribution and Poisson distribution. Continuous distributions: the normal distribution (and the relationship with the binomial distribution); Sampling: properties of the estimated values; sampling distribution of mean and variance; confidence intervals. Significance tests. Goodness of fit.
Numerical Methods - Numerical integration and Error Estimates; Introduction to solution of first order ODES; Numerical solution of initial value problems; Approximate solution of algebraic equations.
Due to COVID-19, teaching and assessment activities are being kept under review - see module enrolment pages for information
