Mathematical Methods of Natural Sciences

An exploration and practicum in advanced mathematical techniques for application in the natural sciences.  The emphasis is on calculating physical quantities using analytical and numerical, exact and approximate methods. Instruction stresses calculational approaches rather than rigorous proofs with substantial practice in analytic calculation skills acquired via problem sets.  Examples and applications are drawn from a variety of fields.

Prerequisites or Prior Knowledge

Calculus,  e.g. A104 Vector and Tensor Calculus, or A108 Partial Differential Equations, Linear algebra, e.g., B29 Linear Algebra
