MA 438 - Advanced Engineering Mathematics

A fast-paced course in advanced applied mathematics for engineering and physics students that combines aspects of MA330, MA336, and MA373. Applied linear algebra, including abstract vector spaces, linear operators, eigentheory, diagonalization, and the matrix exponential; review of partial differentiation and multiple integration, including Lagrange multipliers and other optimization topics; vector analysis, including the Jacobian matrix and the del operator in standard coordinate systems; and Fourier series with application to the solution of partial differential equation boundary value problems. Students who receive credit for MA438 may only receive credit for at most one of MA330, MA336, MA371, and MA373.
