Mathematical Modelling 2


In this subject, students will be working with statistics and mathematical resources to gain an appreciation of the way in which mathematics, probability and statistics have enhanced engineering and science, and how engineering and scientific problems have in turn motivated the development of the mathematics, probability and statistics required for their solution.

Topics from statistics include the presentation of data, discrete and continuous probability distributions, hypothesis testing and confidence intervals, and simple linear regression. Topics from mathematics include simultaneous linear equations and applications, matrices and determinants, heat and wave equations, optimisation and multiple integrals and their applications.
