### Course Description

This course provides a review of linear algebra, including applications to networks, structures, and estimation, Lagrange multipliers. Also covered are: differential equations of equilibrium; Laplace's equation and potential flow; boundary-value problems; minimum principles and calculus of variations; Fourier series; discrete Fourier transform; convolution; and applications.Note: This course was previously called "Mathematical Methods for Engineers I".

marissa wrote 4 years ago.He seems to be a really great professional, but it is

clearly that he is talking to himself while he teaches, he

makes the question he answers them. I have not listen any of

the students say anything, he just keep writing, talking. He

is just speaking to himself aloud, that is why mathematics

feels as it is so difficult, but in reality it is that very

few are able to transmit their knowledge.

not cover the SVD even though the title says it does.

though only mentions SVD in the title not in the content.
