|This course introduces students to vector analysis and partial differential equations, expecting their applications to advanced engineering, such as those related to mechanics and electromagnetics, and those to materials and heat transfer phenomena. The purpose of the course is to acquire fundamental knowledge in vector analysis and partial differential equations and enable students to apply it to solve actual engineering issues through intensive exercises.
1. Enable to solve basic problems on vector analysis.
2. Enable to solve basic problems on partial differential equations.
|Calculus I, II
Linear Algebra I, II
|1. Vector algebra 2. Vector differential operations
3. Curved lines and curved surfaces 4. Gradient, divergence and rotation
5. Line integrals and surface integrals
6. Gauss theorem, Stokes theorem and Green's theorem
7. Irrotational (conservative) field and solenoidal field
8. Curvilinear coordinate systems (cylindrical coordinates and spherical coordinates)
9. Poisson's equation and Green function
10. Separation of variables: Laplace equation, diffusion equation and wave equation
Students are expected to review the distributed notes after lectures. Students need to submit reports on the problems presented in the lecture. The solutions of the problems will be presented in the lecture where reports are returned, through which students are expected to deepen their understanding.
|Not specified. Notes are distributed during the lecture.|
