Applied Mathematics II (MATH2306)

In physics, economics and engineering, we frequently encounter quantities (for example energy) that depend on many variables (such as position, velocity, temperature). Usually this dependency is expressed through a partial differential equation, and solving these equations is important for understanding these complex relationships.

In this course we will study first and second order partial differential equations. The solution methods studied in this course will include the method of characteristics, separation of variables, Fourier series and Fourier transforms.

This course will be useful for majors in economics, mathematical finance, engineering and physics. We will illustrate the theory with examples from these disciplines.

## 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.

## Indicative Assessment

Assessment will be based on:

One mid-semester exam (25%; LO 1-5)
Tutorial presentation (5%; LO 1-5)
10 Assignments (20%; LO 1-5)
Final exam (50%; LO 1-5)

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.

Four lectures per week and regular tutorials.
