Students will be able to
apply integration in the context of balance equations.
perform basic vector & matrix arithmetic
recognise ordinary differential equations and verify solutions.
set up differential equations from balance considerations
determine equilibrium solutions to differential equations and sketch slope fields
solve differential equations using separation of variables (analytically) and Euler’s method (numerically).
handle differential equations and their solutions in the context of applications (population & reaction models).
plot, derive and integrate multivariable functions
determine local extreme values of multivariable functions and apply this to simple optimisation problems
explain the meaning of and interpret the Fourier series and Fourier spectra.
