### PHYS 3250 MATHEMATICAL METHODS OF PHYSICS (3 credits)

Training in the use of mathematical techniques applicable to physics problems encountered in upper-level physics courses. Vector operators, Fourier analysis, frequently used differential equations (ordinary and partial), orthogonal functions, and matrix methods of coordinate transformation are included. Emphasis is given to solving problems from mechanics such as vectoral mechanics, oscillatory systems, wave motion, potential theory, etc.

**Prerequisite(s):** MATH 1950, MATH 1960, MATH 1970 and PHYS 2160 or 2120 or permission.
