In this subject students develop familiarity with the theory of functions of several variables extended to include the following topics: line integrals, integrals over vector paths, systems of linear ordinary differential equations, applications of this theory and some of the main computational techniques used in the solution of linear systems of ordinary differential equations. Technology tools such as Mathematica ( wolfram alpha ) and Python are used to model real world scenarios using systems of linear ordinary differential equations. Applications in biology, chemistry, physics, statistics and engineering rely heavily on the use of such design tools. Examples and applications are introduced throughout the subject.
