Description

This module consists of topics from Intergal and Differential Calculus, Linear Algebra and Complex Numbers. These topics include differental equations and applications, Laplace Transforms, De Moivre's Theorem, Fourier Transforms, Gaussian Elemination and z Transforms.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

 Solve first order differential equations using separable variables technique and the integrating factor method

2.

Solve first and second order differential equations using Laplace transforms

3.

Solve second order differential equations using the complementary function and particular integral

4.

Calculate powers of complex numbers using theorems of DeMoivre and Euler and calculate the Fourier transform of functions

5.

Solve linear systems using Gaussian Elemination and apply this to engineering problems

6.

Be able to obtain the Z Transform of some standard functions and solve first order difference equations.
