In this course, we will learn how to use parallel programming tools to solve problems in science and engineering.

This course introduces students to fundamental elements of programming for mathematical applications.

This course introduces students to scientific computing. The emphasis on this course is on applications and using Matlab or Python to solving science and engineering problems. Less emphasis is placed on numerical algorithms.

In this course, we explore complex numbers and functions of a complex variable. Many of the ideas learned in Calculus will be revisited for complex numbers. The approach of this course will be applied, we will also discuss proofs of basic results.

This course introduce advanced analytic techniques for solving equations that arise in science and engineering. Material will be taken from Chapters 5, 10, 11-14 and 17 (time permitting) of the course textbook.

Emphasis in this course is on “computational” techniques in the sense that we will solve lots of problems (not in the sense of programming). Theory will be presented when it is especially beautiful or enlightening, and has a useful purpose. For example, Sturm-Liouville Theory, Potential Theory. Students may be asked to using plotting packages (Matlab, Python) to plot solutions to problems posed in class, but numerical methods will not be discussed in this course, except in passing.

This course will introduces students to methods for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) using finite difference methods.
