The course covers two distinct topics. The first, Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs), looks at the basics of mathematical modelling with ODEs, non-dimensionalisation, first-order and second-order ODEs, Laplace transform methods, series solutions, perturbation methods, phase planes and non-linear systems. The second topic, Multivariable Calculus, looks at gradients, divergence, curl, multiple integrals, vector fields, vector fluxes and integral theorems. Both topics will use the MATLAB computer package and examples from engineering and applied mathematics.
