Mathematical Methods (MAGIC022)
There are no announcements
This course is part of the MAGIC core.
This is a core applied module. The aim of the course is to pool together a number of advanced mathematical methods which students doing research (in applied mathematics) should know about. Students will be expected to do extensive reading from selected texts, as well as try out example problems to reinforce the material covered in lectures. A number of topics are suggested below and depending on time available, most will be covered. The course proceeds at a fairly fast pace. Assessment The assessment for this module will be in the form of a take-home exam at the end of the course.
Autumn 2016 (Monday, October 3 to Friday, December 9)
It is assumed that students have done some real and complex analysis.
Clicking on the link for a book will take you to the relevant Google Book Search page. You may be able to preview the book there. On the right hand side you will see links to places where you can buy the book. There is also link marked 'Find this book in a library'. This sometimes works well, but not always. (You will need to enter your location, but it will be saved after you do that for the first time.)
There will be 5 questions in the Take Home paper. You need to obtain 50% to pass the course. The paper will be released in early January 2017 and you should upload your solutions via the MAGIC website before the due deadline of midnight 22nd January 2017. Please use a scanner or photocopier to generate a pdf file which can be uploaded.
