Module Description: This module extends the treatment of Laplace transforms, discusses the eigensystem of a matrix and its application to the solution of simultaneous systems of differential equations; derives Fourier series and illustrates their use in the solution of partial differential equations.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Use the method of Laplace transforms to solve differential equations involving the Heaviside unit-step function and the Dirac delta function.
LO2 Calculate the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix and use the eigensystem to solve systems of simultaneous linear differential equations with constant coefficients.
LO3 Derive and apply Fourier series to the solution of a number of partial differential equations.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named MTU module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed

Requirements

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is mandatory before enrolment in this module is allowed. You may not enrol on this module if you have not acquired the learning specified in this section.
