I am emailing a link of this to everyone on the class list every week. If you are not receiving these emails or want to have them sent to another email address feel free to email me at jpmccarthymaths@gmail.com and I will add you to the mailing list.

Assignment 1 Results

Have been emailed to you… some remarks.

Assignment 2

Assignment 2 will have a hand-in date of 25 April: the Monday of Week 11. You should receive the assignment around or before 4 April.

Week 7

We looked at the Inverse Laplace Transform.

Week 8 and Beyond

We will continue this study but allow you plenty of time to practise in class.


Please feel free to ask me questions about the exercises via email or even better on this webpage.

Regarding study over Easter, there are exercises on pages 70, 73, 90 and 103.
My short recommendation is do the P.73 exercises and then look at P.103. We have actually covered everything for Question 3 (bar part (d)).
  • If I write a differential equation as
{stuff with y, y’, y”, etc} = other stuff (for damped harmonic oscillator, the external force)
          then you have to be able to find the Laplace Transform of both sides and so have to be able to find the Laplace transform of functions… this is             what the exercises on P. 70 are concerned with.
  • The exercises on P.73 ask you to do the first three steps of a full question.
  • The exercises on P.90 ask you to do the fourth and final step of a full question.
  • The exercises on P.103 are full questions.
