Advanced Engineering Mathematics 2

Overall Course Objectives

To provide participants with tools, including infinite series, to solve differential equations and systems of differential equations.

Learning Objectives

  • Determine the solutions to nth order homogeneous differential equations
  • Determine the solutions to linear homogeneous systems of differential equations
  • Master the transfer function and apply it to solution of inhomogeneous differential equations
  • Determine and argue for the stability of linear systems of differential equations
  • Know the differences between various types of convergence (absolute, conditional, point-wise, uniform) of infinite series and identify them
  • Estimate the number of terms which is needed in order to obtain a desired approximation of an infinite series
  • Find the Fourier series for simple periodic functions, clarify their convergence properties, and approximation-theoretic properties
  • Apply Fourier series, power series and various other types of infinite series to solution of differential equations
  • Determine the Fourier transform of simple functions
  • Apply Maple to calculations and control of the results
