PHY 201 - Mathematical Methods for Scientists


Designed to develop a basic competence in many areas of mathematics needed for junior/senior level work in the sciences. Basic methods of power series, complex numbers, Fourier analysis, linear algebra, ordinary and partial differential equations, multivariable and vector calculus covered clearly and carefully but without detailed proofs. Symbolic computation and scientific visualization tools used as appropriate.  May not be taken for major credit in the senior year.

Satisfies the Mathematical and Quantitative Thought requirement.
