• APPM 1350 - Calculus 1 for Engineers
Primary Instructor - Fall 2021
Topics in analytical geometry and calculus including limits, rates of change of functions, derivatives and integrals of algebraic and transcendental functions, applications of differentiations and integration. Students who have already earned college credit for calculus 1 are eligible to enroll in this course if they want to solidify their knowledge base in calculus 1. For more information about the math placement referred to in the "Enrollment Requirements", contact your academic advisor. Degree credit not granted for this course and APPM 1345 or ECON 1088 or MATH 1081 or MATH 1300 or MATH 1310 or MATH 1330.
• APPM 1360 - Calculus 2 for Engineers
Primary Instructor - Spring 2024
Continuation of APPM 1350. Focuses on applications of the definite integral, methods of integration, improper integrals, Taylor's theorem, and infinite series. Degree credit not granted for this course and MATH 2300.
• APPM 2350 - Calculus 3 for Engineers
Primary Instructor - Fall 2020 / Spring 2021 / Fall 2022
Covers multivariable calculus, vector analysis, and theorems of Gauss, Green, and Stokes. Degree credit not granted for this course and MATH 2400.
• APPM 4350 - Methods in Applied Mathematics: Fourier Series and Boundary Value Problems
Primary Instructor - Fall 2023
Reviews ordinary differential equations, including solutions by Fourier series. Physical derivation of the classical linear partial differential equations (heat, wave, and Laplace equations). Solution of these equations via separation of variables, with Fourier series, Fourier integrals, and more general eigenfunction expansions. Same as APPM 5350.
• APPM 4360 - Methods in Applied Mathematics: Complex Variables and Applications
Primary Instructor - Spring 2022 / Spring 2023
Introduces methods of complex variables, contour integration and theory of residues. Applications include solving partial differential equations by transform methods, Fourier and Laplace transforms and Reimann-Hilbert boundary-value problems, conformal mapping to ideal fluid flow and/or electrostatics. Same as APPM 5360.
• APPM 5350 - Methods in Applied Mathematics: Fourier Series and Boundary Value Problems
Primary Instructor - Fall 2023
