EMAT20200 Engineering Maths II (20 credits)

As taken by 2nd year students on Aerospace, Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering programmes.

Organiser: Staffing:

Dr M D J Barry Lecturers: Prof. Alan Champneys, Dr Mike Barry, Prof. Bernd Krauskopf This is the second of the two units which cover the basic mathematics requirements of engineering degree programmes. It comprises four elements: Vector Calculus, Applied Statistics, Partial Differential Equations and Numerical Analysis. Engineering Mathematics I or equivalent To enhance and develop the students understanding of and ability to use the language of mathematics in the description of engineering


Pre-requisites: Aims:

Vector Calculus: Students should build upon their knowledge of the Learning outcomes: single variable differential and integral calculus so they can apply this to multiple integration and to changes of coordinate systems. Vector methods are then introduced. Vector Calculus extends this knowledge to integration along curves, over curved surfaces and through volumes. Students then learn how to apply the classical Stokes, Gauss and Greens theorems to problems in the physical sciences and to a wide variety of applications in engineering. Applied Statistics: The student will build upon the knowledge of basic probability theory and will extend this into the real world of applied statistics. Starting with the Poisson Process, and the Normal Distribution; the Central Limit Theorem is applied to Sampling Theory within the context of Hypothesis Testing. This enables one to make inferences, and obtain confidence intervals about the Means of large populations. The goodness of fit of real data to a theoretical probability model follows. Correlation measures the degree of association between two randomly varying quantities, and regression enables one to delineate this measure of association. Linear Systems & Partial Differential Equations: The student will learn about periodic functions and the frequency domain and how they are represented and calculated. They will also learn how to represent the exponential parts of functions using Laplace transforms. Solutions of problems in the time domain can be solved using the ensuing Laplace and Fourier transforms. Students will learn to understand different forms of differential equation in two independent variables and what they mean physically. They will also understand a variety of methods for their solution. Numerical Analysis: The students will understand that very few problems

in engineering and mathematics have a simple analytical or closed form solution and that numerical methods are required. From the first principles of numerical error propagation, the student will be taken through equation solution, interpolation and approximation, and numerical methods in calculus extending into ordinary differential equations.
