Unit Name: Engineering Mathematics III

Description: The first half of this course is on probability, statistics and Fourier Series and Transformation. Chance plays a significant role in designing and developing new products, manufacturing systems, and improving existing systems. Statistical methods are essential in these activities because they provide the engineer with both descriptive and analytical methods for dealing with the variability in observed data. For analysing vibrations, system dynamics and converting signals from a particular domain to a time domain, it becomes vital to study the Fourier series and transformation. The other half of this course is on ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and numerical analysis. Differential equations are the language in which the laws of nature are expressed. With the advent of faster computers, numerical simulation of physical phenomena is becoming more practical and familiar. Computational prototyping is becoming a significant part of the design process for engineering systems. With ever-increasing computer performance, the outlook is even brighter, and computer simulations are expected to replace expensive physical testing of design prototypes. Though it is also crucial for computational engineers to have first-hand experience solving real problems with the computer, this unit introduces numerical analysis methods to the students.
