This is the second unit in a sequence of introductory pure and applied mathematics. It comprises linear
algebra, integration, infinite series, complex numbers, analytic geometry, and differential equations.
Applications of Mathematica are included.

An introductory unit in mathematical concepts and techniques. Topics include: logic, basic algebra, sets and probability, descriptive statistics, elementary functions, basic differentiation and integration, complex numbers and infinite series. Computer spreadsheet software and Mathematica are used to support topics where applicable .

Complex numbers and functions, complex differentiation and integration, Taylor and Laurent series, residue theorem, conformal mappings, asymptotic solutions of differential equations, gamma, zeta and elliptic functions briefly. Special functions and applications, Laplace transforms and applications, introduction to chaotic dynamical systems. Supportive use of Mathematica.

With PHYS16000 this unit provides a first-level introduction to classical and modern physics. Topics include:electrostatics, dc and ac circuits, magnetostatics, electromagnetism, geometrical and physical optics, special relativity, particles and waves, and atomic and nuclear physics. Considerable emphasis is placed on the historical development of thought in these areas, particularly electromagnetics and modern physics.

This unit discusses historical, philosophical, religious and ethical issues arising from scientific thought. Topics covered include: the nature and philosophy of science, ecology and the environment, issues in medical ethics,and science and Christianity.
