Applied Mathematics

Course Objective
This course focuses on several branches of applied mathematics. The students are exposed to complex variable theory and a study of the Fourier and Z‑Transforms, topics of current importance in signal processing. The course concludes with studies of the wave and heat equations in Cartesian and polar coordinates.
