Advanced Analytic Methods in Science and Engineering: Course Description

This lecture course was taught on the MIT campus by Professor Hung Cheng, who also wrote the course textbook, Advanced Analytic Methods in Continuum Mathematics: Fundamentals for Science & Engineering; the textbook is recommended for OpenCourseWare students. Professor Cheng designed this course with an analytical approach that will help students learn mathematical themes instead of memorizing formulas. Students may find previous coursework in advanced calculus or complex variables helpful. Lecture notes included in this OpenCourseWare cover applied mathematics topics such as complex analysis, the WKB method, boundary layer theory, partial and ordinary differential equations, separation of variables, turning points and stationary phase methods. Problem sets and exams testing these concepts are available for download, as well as solutions to both. Graduate students interested in relating advanced methods of applied mathematical techniques to other fields of study--such as Engineering and the sciences--may benefit from this online course.

Course materials for 'Advanced Analytic Methods in Science and Engineering' include lecture notes, problem set assignments, examinations and solutions. If you are interested in taking this free course, visit the analytic methods and applied mathematics course homepage.
