EE1-10 Mathematics 1 (E-stream and I-stream)Lecturer(s): Dr Gunnar Pruessner; Dr Henrik Jensen
To introduce mathematics as a logical and structured discipline ; to ensure that all students acquire the mathematical knowledge and skills required for their first year electrical engineering courses ; to provide a basis for the more advanced mathematical techniques which are required in later years of the course.
By the end of the course, students will be able to :
(i) manipulate complex numbers in both standard and polar forms ; apply de Moivreís theorem;
(ii) apply the techniques of the differential calculus to determine the maxima and minima of functions and to curve sketching ;
(iii) integrate simple functions using the methods of substitution and integration by parts;
(iv) find analytic solutions of certain first order ordinary differential equations ; find the general solution of linear constant coefficient second order ODEís ;
(v) carry out calculations involving the differentiation of functions of two variables ; determine Taylorís power series expansion for a function of two variables ; determine stationary points ; sketch contour maps ;
(vi) become familiar with statements using quantifiers, some standard proof techniques and the logical framework ;
(vii) be able to manipulate sets, functions and relations ;
(viii) determine the Maclaurin series expansions of the standard functions and to apply the ratio test to check for convergence;
(ix) carry out calculations involving hyperbolic functions and relate these functions to the trigonometric functions ;
(x) determine the Fourier series expansions of simple functions ;
(xi) carry out simple calculations in vector algebra , vector geometry and matrix algebra ;
(xii) find the inverse of matrices by the Gauss-Jordan method and the solution of systems of linear algebraic equations by Gaussian elimination ;
(xiii) compute eigenvalues and eigenvectors of matrices, and use matrices to solve linear numerical and differential equations.
