Linear Algebra

Course Description

This is a survey of several very useful Maths Application areas including: Linear Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Complex Functions and Probability and Statistics. This course is applied mathematics for computer scientists, physicists, mathematicians, and engineers as well as members of other disciplines.

Intended Learning Outcomes (ILO)

Upon the successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

  • solve various practical problems of computing
  • solve linear ordinary differential equations and initial value problems much more easily in electrical networks, springs, mixing problems and signal processing.
  • apply the theoretical knowledge in modern communication systems.
  • understand to use of appropriate computer software to solve systems of equations
  • explain about mathematical model could be a system of differential equations, such as a probability model.
  • describe one of the techniques solving the mathematical problem
