PHYS 410 - Mathematical Methods for the Physical Sciences and Engineering


Description:
Survey of useful mathematical methods in the physical sciences and engineering.  Topics are of particular relevance for students preparing for graduate studies in physical sciences or engineering.

Prerequisites:
Prerequisites: MATH 376 and PHYS 318.

Credits: (3)

Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Generate solutions of physical systems that are described by partial differential equations of the Sturm-Liouville form.
  • Examine Sturm-Liouville constructs as an example of Hilbert spaces.
  • Interpret functions of a complex variable using Argand diagrams.
  • Evaluate contour integrals for functions of a complex variable associated with physical systems using the calculus of residues.
  • Justify selection of symmetry with which to approach the description of physical systems.
  • Apply abstract symmetries and their associated algebras to analyze and obtain fundamental descriptions of physical systems.
