Lecture plan

This section contains descriptions of the material covered in lectures, all of which are examinable unless explicitly exempted.

Laplace transforms and Fourier analysis.

The chapter numbers refer to the 10th edition of Kreyszig.

35 6.3 - 6.5 Heaviside function, delta function, convolution
36 6.6, 6.7, 11.1 More ODEs, Fourier series (lecture notes 1) and (lecture notes 2)
37 11.2 - 11.4 Fourier series: representations and convergence (lecture notes 3) and (lecture notes 4)
38 11.7, 11.9 Fourier integral and transform (lecture notes 5) and (lecture notes 6)
39 12.1 - 12.4 Wave equation (lecture notes 7) and (lecture notes 8)
40 12.5 - 12.7 Heat equation (lecture notes 9) and (lecture notes 10)

Pang's TMA4130 Part I Notes Not everything here was in lectures, and not everything said in lectures is included here, and non-examinable material are marked as such.

Numerical methods.

The curriculum is covered by the notes found in Jupyter notes — also found below. There are also pdf-versions of the notes available. Jupyterhub is used for running/viewing the .ipynb files, and can be accessed via this link: (Jupyterhub). You can also use the .ipynb files by downloading Jupyter Notebook here, or with Python here if you do not already have Python.

About programming: You are supposed to be able to read and understand simple python code, and to do small modifications on a given code. Possible small syntax errors will have no influence on the grade.

47 Revision (lecture notes 22)

There are video lectures from 2011, which should only be considered as support, and not as replacement of the class lectures. Note that the order in which the different topics were discussed in 2011 differs from the lectures, the curriculum has also been altered, in particular the numerics part. Holden's lectures are being video recorded (requires login).
