It also provides an introduction to linear programming and numerical analysis of complex systems.

Topics Covered

  1. Vector differential and integral calculus (5 classes)
  2. Complex numbers and functions, mapping in the complex plane (6 classes)
  3. Exponential, trigonometric, hyperbolic, and logarithm functions of a complex variable (5 classes)
  4. Integration in the complex plane/line integrals (4 classes)
  5. Real and complex series: power, Taylor, and Maclaurin Series (4 classes)
  6. Laurent Series, residue integration (4 classes)
  7. Evaluation of real integrals. (3 classes)
  8. Applications of complex analysis: Laplace’s equation applied to conduction heat transfer and potential fluid flow (5 classes)
  9. Numerical methods for partial differential equations (4 classes)
  10. Examinations (2 classes)

Computer Use

Appropriate software (primarily MATLAB and Mathcad) is used to benchmark and validate some analytical solutions.

Class/Laboratory Schedule

Three 50 minute sessions per week devoted to lecture, discussion, and problem solving.


Homework - 10%, quizzes - 5%, midterm exams - 50%, final exam - 35%.

Curriculum Criterion Contribution

Engineering science: 3 credits.

Relationship to Program Outcomes
