The course covers two distinct topics. The first, Partial Differential Equations (PDEs), looks at the basics of mathematical modelling with PDEs, with special emphasis on diffusion and wave equations in several different coordinate systems (for example, Cartesian and polar coordinates). The course will cover separable PDEs and orthogonal functions. The second topic, Probability and Statistics, builds on the first-year probability course to consider a selection of topics such as: reliability analysis, hypothesis testing, failure data and regression analysis.
