Mathematics 2 for mechanical and civil engineering
Study plans 2016-2017
- 10 ECTS
On the basis of
REA1141 Mathematics 1
Expected learning outcomes
The students will learn mathematical tools and methods for engineering problem solving, and acquire a foundation for further study in mathematics and engineering. The course emphasizes modeling and applications.
- Understand the relevance of mathematics in engineering problem solving
- Able to identify applications of mathematics in engineering subjects
- Know the possibilities and limitations of mathematical software
The course gives in-depth knowledge in the areas of linear algebra with selected applications, power series and extreme value problems, with:
- able to understand and use mathematical language.
- able to use mathematical methods and software to solve problems.
- able to judge accuracy of numerical results.
- basic mathematical reasoning
- able to do simple mathematical modeling
The skills are developed by applications to the knowledge areas.
Systems of linear equations:
- Vector spaces
- Linear transformations
- Eigensystems and diagonalisation
- Series, sequences and convergence
- Taylor series
- The element method
- Extreme value problems in several variables using partial derivatives and the least squares method
Teaching Methods (additional text)
