Spring 2017: MATH 464 Transformed Methods for Scientists and Engineers
Lectures: 2:00pm3:15pm on Tue., Thr., in CSIC 4122. Except when a CSCAMM workshop takes place. Prerequisites: MATH 246 Textbook:
Description: MATH 464 is an introduction to transformed methods used in science and engineering applications. Lectures will cover topics including: Fourier transform, Fourier series, discrete and fast Fourier transform (DFT and FFT), Laplace transform, Poisson Summation, and sampling. Optional Topics: Distributions and operational calculus, PDEs, Wavelet transform, Radon transforms. Applications: Imaging, Speech Processing, PDEs of Mathematical Physics, Communications, Inverse Problems. Assignments: Homework must be submitted on the date assigned. Homework must be prepared without consulting any other person. You may however consult any written reference. In this case you should cite the reference. Results taken from the reference should be (re)stated to the notation used in the course. Explanation should be given in complete English sentences. Written work must be legible and clear. Exams: One midterm will be scheduled during regular class (1h15min long). You are allowed with one onesided formula
sheet. The final exam will be 2hour long, and currently it is scheduled for
May 17, 10:30am12:30pm.
For the final exam you are allowed with one twosided formula sheet.
