M 383C M 383C. Methods of Applied Mathematics. 3 Hours.
Same as Computational Science, Engineering, and Mathematics 386C. Topics include basic normed linear space theory; fixed-point theorems and applications to differential and integral equations; Hilbert spaces and the spectral theorem; applications to Sturm-Liouville problems; approximation and computational methods such as the Galerkin, Rayleigh-Ritz, and Newton procedures. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Computational Science, Engineering, and Mathematics 386C and Mathematics 383C may not both be counted. Prerequisite: Graduate standing.
