  • Overview

    The ideas related to systems of linear equations introduced in MATH135 are further developed to study ideas related to linearity, including matrices, determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors and diagonalisation in Euclidean spaces. Complex numbers, polynomials and rational functions are covered in reasonable detail. The study of differential and integral calculus is taken further by the discussion of additional techniques of integration and the study of first-order and second-order ordinary differential equations, and the notion of a limit is enhanced by the study of sequences and series and their convergence. Finally, we will discuss some aspects relating to the continuity and differentiability of functions of two real variables.


    Course is typically offered during the Spring and Fall semesters
