Anti-requisite(s): 37234 Complex Analysis
This subject is delivered by the School of Mathematics and Physical Sciences. It is aimed at both second-year engineering and science undergraduate students. This subject provides students with the fundamental mathematical and physical knowledge required as practicing engineers and scientists. It provides an up-to-date toolbox of mathematical methods needed for the analysis of electric and magnetic fields, circuits, signal processing and theoretical and applied quantum physics. The physics section of this subject provides an introduction to quantum physics (starting from classical mechanics) through to the application of quantum physics to real-world situations such as semiconductor electronic and opto-electronic devices. Mathematics topics covered include: vector calculus; differentiation, integration and functions of a complex variable; Divergence and Stokes theorems; Cauchy-Riemann equations; Residue theorem and Laplace transforms.
