Mathematical Methods for Physics

Session: Spring 2015 (1/20-5/08)
Instructor: Oriol T. Valls (e-mail: otvalls @ umn.edu)
Time: 1220 MWF
Location: MurH 214

The course introduces students to some of the more advanced mathematical methods most widely used in physics. The emphasis is on the analytical methods and their computational implementation using symbolic calculations software, such as Mathematica. Basic numerical methods are presented with the emphasis on the ways to evaluate their accuracy and effectiveness. Major topics to be covered include complex analysis, Fourier transforms, probabilities, and asymptotics. An additional goal of the course is to expose the students to the use of mathematics in contemporary physics research
