Partial Differential Equations, Fourier Analysis and Complex Analysis (MATH6406)

Many physical processes such as vibrating strings, diffusion of heat and fluid flows are well modelled by partial differential equations and/or integral equations. This course provides an introduction to methods for solving and analysing standard partial differential equations and integral equations, including an introduction to complex analytic techniques.

## Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

1. Explain the fundamental concepts of partial differential equations and their role in modern mathematics and applied contexts
2. Demonstrate accurate and efficient use of Fourier series, complex analysis and integral transform techniques
3. Demonstrate capacity for mathematical reasoning through analyzing, proving and explaining concepts from partial differential equations and complex analysis
4. Apply problem-solving using Fourier series, complex analysis and integral transform techniques applied to diverse situations in physics, engineering and other mathematical contexts.
5. Explain the use and applications of partial differential equations and/or complex analysis to some topic related to undergraduate study, employment or other experience.

## Indicative Assessment

Note: Graduate students attend joint classes with undergraduates but will be assessed separately. Assessment will be based on:

• Assignments (30% in total; LO 1-4)
• Completion of project linking Mathematics to own field of interest (15% in total: LO 1-5)
• Final examination (55%; LO 1-4)

UG Assessment

• Assignments (30%; LO 1-4)
• Final exam (70%; LO 1-4)

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
