Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of the course the students should be able to: 1. Solve linear differential equations of second or higher order and systems of 1st order linear differential equations. 2. Use Laplace transform (its properties and properties of inverse Laplace transform) for solving physical problems, e.g. circuits. 3. Perform calculations with complex numbers and use elementary complex functions as a tool of geometric transformations. Also, use complex integration as a tool for qualitative study of two dimensional vector fields (circulation-flux, complex potential). Finally, uo use complex analysis techniques as a tool in signal processing and PDE’s. 4. Use methods of Fourier Analysis (Fourier series and Fourier integrals) for solving two dimensional Dirichlet's prolem inside a rectangular, or a disk or in the upper half plane, or one dimensional heat and wave equations by applying the method of separation of variables.
