Assignment 1

Assignment 1 has a hand-in time and date of 14:30 Friday 2 March (Week 5) and has been given out.

Careful in your “collaboration” — don’t take an explanation, etc. from another
student unless it makes sense to you: otherwise you are not going to get the benefit out of completing this assignment.

Week 4

We continued our work on Chapter 2 — the method of undetermined coefficients for solving linear odes — by looking at the case of external forces. We had two tutorials.

Week 5

We will hopefully finish off our work on the method of undetermined coefficients: we will start the second tutorial (Thursday) only when we finish Section 2.4 (what if we know the initial conditions).


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