Introduces key areas of mathematics directly relevant to Electrical, Computer or Telecommunications Engineering. Provides a sound grounding in the differentiation and integration of functions of complex variables, as well as essential concepts associated with both discrete and continuous probability spaces. These topics provide an essential foundation for modern control engineering and signal processing.
Forms the analytical basis for subsequent engineering courses studied in the third and fourth years of the program as well as generic mathematical skills of problem-solving and abstract reasoning.
|Objectives||At the successful completion of this course, students will have:
1. Necessary mathematical knowledge in the areas of complex variable theory and probability theory to support further engineering studies.
2. An enhanced analytical ability of the students, in particular, their skills at problem-solving and abstract reasoning.
|Content||.Functions of a complex variable.
.Differentiation of functions.
