Modelling Space and Systems

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Provides the knowledge on how to model real life problems by casting them against a rigorous modelling framework on the topics of multivariable calculus and linear algebra. This course builds upon the Term 1 course, Modelling and Analysis, and will cover the following topics: differentiation and integration in multiple dimensions, optimization, line integrals, linear maps, eigenvalues and eigenvectors. By working in group projects and writing MATLAB codes, students will appreciate the various topics and connections between mathematics and physics, computer science, probability, statistics and other topics.
