PHY 435  Mathematical Methods for Physics (3)A course designed to integrate mathematics into a coherent foundation for problem solving for upperlevel physics and engineering course. Topics include Laplace and Fourier transformations, Fourier series, vector operators, ordinary and partial differential equations, and orthogonal functions. Emphasis is given to the solution (analytical and numerical) of problems from both physics and engineering. Completion of the course allows the student to define important aspects of each mathematical topic, to describe the relevance of each topic to physics and engineering problems, and to work both formal and physics/engineering problems involving each topic. Prerequisite: MTH 236 . Offered odd fall terms. (Crossreferenced with MTH 435 .)
