#### Operational Mathematics

Dr. C. Hu

2.5 credits

Lectures. One 2-hour session each week.

The aim of this course is to strengthen students' background in analysis and operational use of mathematics. The course will emphasize the application of several fundamental results, and not the proofs of these results. Students will work several problems which illustrate fundamental mathematical operations. Topics include concepts of convergence (e.g., power series, Taylor's series), functions (limits, continuity, step functions, L'Hopital's rule, differentiability), integration (Riemann, Stieltjes, Lebesque), operations convergence theorem, complex variables (e.g., Laplace transforms, Fourier transforms, inversion formulas).

Course Note: Enrollment in the Biostatistics Department, or signature of instructor required. (5.06)
