20 Credits SPRING



Aims/Description: This module will develop mathematical methods, including integral transforms, asymptotics and perturbation, applied to problems including differential equations and evaluation of integrals.Mathematical modelling enables insight in to a wide range of scientific problems. This module will provide a practical introduction to techniques for modelling natural systems. Students will learn how to construct, analyse and interpret mathematical models, using a combination of advanced mathematical and computational methods. Study systems will be drawn from throughout the environmental and life sciences.
