This is a year-long (three-quarter) course designed for graduate students and upper-division
undergraduate students of applied and computational
mathematics, physical sciences (physics, chemistry, biology, etc.), and engineering.
The course covers the basics of broadly ranged important topics of modern
mathematics that have emerging applications in science and engineering.
An emphasis will be placed on both the mathematical rigor and problem solving techniques.
It is expected that students who take this course seriously will
have a good mathematical background for scientific, engineering, mathematical, and
interdisciplinary researches.
Topics of the course include but are not limited to:
Prerequisites of this course is a solid background of calculus and linear algebra. We will not follow a special textbook. But lecture notes will be distributed in the class. Rferences will be listed in the class webpage and some of them will be reserved in UCSD library. Course grades will be based on class participation, homework and exams. |
