A study of the application of mathematics to engineering problems involving biological systems. Students will develop proficiency in using the control volume technique to develop models describing mechanical, fluid and thermal systems. Analytical solutions are derived for commonly encountered ordinary and partial differential equations. System response and modelling aspects will be studied. An introduction is given to numerical procedures for solution of initial value and boundary value problems. Topics include: Laplace transforms, Linear systems, use of matrices to solve both singular and nonsingular systems of linear equations, Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors, Fourier Series, introduction to numerical methods and introduction to MATLAB.
