VersionNo. 1.1 Course MAT101MultivariableCalculusandDifferentialEquations Prerequisites Objectives This course is designed to give a comprehensive coverage at an introductory level to the subject of ordinary differential equations and difference equations. Matrix methods and eigenvalue problems are integrated in to the course. Sufficient emphasis is laid on mathematical modeling and analysis of simple engineering problems. ExpectedOutcome At the end of this course, the students are expected to know how to model simple physical problems in the form of a differential and difference equations, analyze and interpret the solutions. Further the students are expected to acquire necessary background in matrix methods and Eigenvalue problems so as to appreciate their importance to engineering systems.
