Module Author:  CIARAN TAYLOR 

Module Description:  The first aim of Mathematics 4 is to further develop the broad range of standard
mathematical techniques in linear algebra, analysis and calculus assimilated in
Mathematics 2. The second aim is to enable the student to apply these
mathematical techniques to the solution of bounded engineering problems. 

Learning Outcomes 
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to: 
LO1 
Find partial derivatives of functions of several variables. 
LO2 
Use partial derivatives to find the gradient of a scalar field and the divergence and curl of a vector field. [POa, POb, POd, POg] 
LO3 
Obtain definite and indefinite integrals of functions using standard integration
methods. [POa, POb] 
LO4 
Obtain eigenvalues and eigenvectors of 2 × 2 and 3 × 3 matrices. [POa, POb, POd] 
LO5 
Use cofactors to find 4 × 4 determinants and 3 × 3 inverses. [POa, POb, POd] 
LO6 
Use appropriate numerical techniques to solve relevant nonlinear engineering problems and understand the limitations of these methods [POa, POb, POd] 
LO7 
Write algorithms to solve problems involving numerical techniques and implement them in programs using a modern programming language.
