It also introduces you to common set theoretic notation and terminology and a precise language in which to talk about functions. There is emphasis on precise definitions of concepts and careful proofs of results. Styles of mathematical proofs you will discuss include: proof by induction, direct proofs, proof by contradiction, contrapositive statements, equivalent statements and the role of examples and counterexamples. In addition, this unit will also provide you with an introduction to producing mathematical documents using Latex, and an introduction to solving mathematical problems computationally using both Symbolic Algebra packages and Excel.

Code MTHA4001B - (10 Credits)

Probability is the study of the chance of events occurring. It has important applications to understand the likelihood of multiple events happening together and therefore to rational decision-making.

Code MTHA4003A - (20 Credits)

Algebra plays a key role in pure mathematics and its applications. We will provide you with a thorough introduction and develop this theory from first principles. We develop the theory of matrices, mainly (though not exclusively) over the real numbers. The material covers matrix operations, linear equations, determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization and geometric aspects. Another topic underlying all mathematics is Real Analysis. We will explore the mathematical notion of a limit and see the precise definition of the limit of a sequence of real numbers and learn how to prove that a sequence converges to a limit. After studying limits of infinite sequences, we move on to series, which capture the notion of an infinite sum.

Code MTHA4003B - (20 Credits)

In the Real Analysis thread, this module extends the material studied in the first semester module “Linear algebra, sequences and series” (MTHA4003A) We learn about limits of functions and continuity before moving on to study precise definitions of differentiation and integration. This then leads to the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. We are introduced to Group Theory via the study of symmetry and Group Axioms. The basic concepts are subgroups, Lagrange’s theorem, factor groups, group actions and the Isomorphism Theorem.

Code MTHA4007B - (20 Credits)

Computation and modelling are essential skills for the modern mathematician. While many applied problems are amenable to analytic methods, many require some numerical computation to complete the solution. The synthesis of these two approaches can provide deep insight into highly complex mathematical ideas.

 

Year 2

Compulsory Modules (80 Credits)

Code MTHA5003A - (20 Credits)

One thread of this module covers the standard basic theory of the complex plane. The areas covered include continuity, power series and how they represent functions for both real and complex variables, differentiation, holomorphic functions, Cauchy-Riemann equations. The second thread follows on from the Linear Algebra studied in Year One. We introduce the concept of a vector space over a field. Throughout the module we will see examples of different vector spaces which will illustrate the results presented. We will learn about vector subspaces. We will see the definition of a basis of a vector space, why this construction is useful and how we can then talk about the dimension of the space. We will then look at linear transformations between pairs of vector spaces, which will lead to the definitions of the kernel and the image of a linear transformation and hence to the rank-nullity theorem. We will see how by fixing bases, a linear transformation can be encoded in matrix form and how changing the bases changes that matrix, which will lead on to the study of eigenvectors and the diagonalization of matrices.

Code MTHA5003B - (20 Credits)

Study of complex integration will include consideration of the topology of the complex plane along with proof of the Cauchy and Laurent theorems along with applications including residue calculus. The other area of mathematics studied in this module is Ring Theory. After an introduction to rings using integers as a model, we develop the theory with many examples related to familiar concepts such as substitution and factorisation. Important examples of commutative rings include fields, domains, polynomial rings and their quotients.

Code MTHA5002A - (20 Credits)

In this module, building on knowledge from Calculus, you will develop skills in a variety of mathematical techniques for solving differential equations, and how they can be applied to model a range of applications. As a particular focus, you will consider how we can describe mathematically how a fluid behaves. Techniques for solving differential equations will consider both Ordinary Differential Equations, including series solutions and the method of Frobenius, and Partial Differential Equations, where the method of separation of variables will be introduced. Fourier series (representations of functions as infinite series in Sin and Cos) are also considered. You will also discover the fundamentals of Vector Calculus, how differentiation can be applied to vector fields such as fluid velocity. You will encounter a variety of important Partial Differential Equations from applied mathematics, including deriving the heat equation and the wave equation. The knowledge of vector calculus will also be applied to formulating the differential equations that govern fluid flows, and solving problems such as the flow out of a reservoir.

Code MTHA5002B - (20 Credits)

A range of methods applicable to solving physical problems are studied, including the Method of Characteristics for solving Partial Differential Equations and Fourier Transforms. This is followed by an introduction to Dynamical Systems – understanding the behaviour of nonlinear differential equations. In the other part of this module, solving equations of fluid flow are considered using both numeric and analytic methods.

On the one hand we shall cover concepts such as ordinals, cardinals, and the Zermelo-Fraenkel axioms with the Axiom of Choice. On the other, we shall see how these ideas come up in other areas of mathematics, such as graph theory and topology. Familiarity with and a taste for mathematical proofs will be assumed. Therefore, second year Analysis is a desired prerequisite.

Code MTHE6007B - (20 Credits)

The ocean is an important component of the Earth's climate system. This module covers mathematically modelling of the large-scale ocean circulation and oceanic wave motion. This module builds upon the techniques in fluid dynamics and differential equations that you developed in year two. It then uses these techniques to explain some interesting phenomena in the ocean that are relevant to the real world. We begin by examining the effects of rotation on fluid flows. This naturally leads to the important concept of geostrophy, which enables ocean currents to be inferred from measurements of the sea surface height or from vertical profiles of seawater density. Geostrophy also plays a key role in the development of a model for the global scale circulation of abyssal ocean. The role of the wind in driving the ocean will be examined. This enables us to model the large-scale circulation of the ocean including the development of oceanic gyres and strong western boundary currents, such as the Gulf Stream. The module concludes by examining the role of waves, both at the sea surface and internal to the ocean. The differences between wave motion at mid-latitudes and the Equator are examined, as is the roll of the Equator as a wave-guide. The equatorial waves that you will study are intimately linked with the El Niño phenomenon that affects the climate throughout the globe.

Code MTHE6026B - (20 Credits)

Approximation schemes will also be discussed, with particular emphasis on variational principles, WKB approximation.

Code MTHE6033A - (20 Credits)

This module is about further topics in algebra. It builds on the knowledge obtained on groups, rings and vector spaces in the first two years. Groups can be studied directly, or via objects called algebras (which have the structures of both rings and vector spaces). On the other hand, algebras can also be studied in their own right. Some of these concepts will be explored in this module.

Code MTHE6034A - (20 Credits)

Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) are ubiquitous in applied mathematics. They arise in many models of physical systems where there is coupling between the variation in space and time, or more than one spatial dimension. Examples include fluid flows, electromagnetism, population dynamics, and the spread of infectious diseases. It is therefore important to understand the theory of PDEs, as well as different analytic and numerical methods for solving them. This module will provide you with an understanding of the different types of PDE, including linear, non-linear, elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic; and how these features affect the required boundary conditions and solution techniques. We will study different methods of analytical solution (such as greens functions, boundary-integral methods, similarity solutions, and characteristics); as well as appropriate numerical methods (with topics such as implicit versus explicit schemes, convergence and stability). Examples and applications will be taken from a variety of fields.

Code MTHE6035B - (20 Credits)

Number Theory is the study of arithmetical properties of the integers: properties of, and patterns in, prime numbers, integer solutions of equations with integer coefficients, etc. Gauss called Number Theory "the queen of mathematics" and, following on from work of Fermat and Euler, is responsible for the emergence of Number Theory as a central subject in modern mathematics. Since then, Number Theory has developed in many directions, including Algebraic, Analytic and Probabilistic Number Theory, Diophantine Geometry and has found surprising applications in modern life (notably in Cryptography). In this module, building on first year material on prime factorization and basic congruences, and second year material on groups, rings and fields, you will study various aspects of Number Theory, including certain diophantine equations, polynomial congruences and the famous theorem of Quadratic Reciprocity.
