Anti-requisite(s): 33130 Mathematical Modelling 1 AND 35101 Introduction to Linear Dynamical Systems AND 37131 Introduction to Linear Dynamical Systems
Recommended studies: two units of HSC Mathematics
Mathematical modelling is essential in all branches of science. This subject develops the knowledge and skills necessary for problem-solving and mathematical modelling at an introductory level. Topics covered include: vectors and geometry; complex numbers; calculus and its relationship to science; differentiation and integration of functions; inverse, trigonometric and hyperbolic functions; the solution of differential equations with applications to exponential growth and decay and oscillating systems; Taylor series; and an introduction to linear algebra. The computer algebra system Mathematica is used for symbolic, graphical and numerical computations.
