Duration: 24 weeks.
Number of lectures per week: 2 + tutorial
Assessment: Assignments counting 10%
End-of-year Examination: One 3 hour examination.
Description: More detailed information, problems sheets and problem sheet solutions can be found at http://www.maths.tcd.ie/~houghton/2E2.html. The course outline is
Laplace transforms (Kreyszig Chapter 5, or James Chapter 2, or Kaplan Chapter 4) and Z-transform (James Chapter 5). This continues the work on linear constant coefficient differential and difference equations begun in 1E2. It allows a more diverse variety of input functions.
Objectives
To give the participants an understanding of how to solve the differential equations that arise in engineering, and to promote an ability among the participants to apply this knowledge in new situations.
