Module Description:This subject aims to equip students with the mathematical methods used to solve ordinary and partial differential equations, which occur in modelling engineering systems, and to carry out calculations with basic error-correcting codes.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Use the generator and Hamming matrices interchangeably to construct all code words for an error-correcting code.
LO2 Decode received words using syndrome and coset leaders.
LO3 Test functions of a complex variable for analyticity and evaluate contour integrals using the residue theorem.
LO4 Solve linear, and systems of linear, ordinary differential equations by Laplace transform and other methods.
LO5 Solve the wave equation, the diffusion equation and Laplace’s equation in particular cases.
