Official Course Description:
Second semester Engineering and Science Mathematics is offered in two parallel classes that cover a common set of core topics at approximately the same level of difficulty. However, style of exposition and selection of additional material will vary slightly to meet the needs of different groups of majors.
ESM 2B is recommended for students who do not intend to major in the Life Sciences or Chemistry. It covers the following topics: Linear Algebra (equations of lines and planes, matrix algebra, system of linear equations, matrix inverse, vector spaces, linear independence, basis, dimension, linear transformations, change of basis, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization, inner products, orthonormalization). Fourier methods (expanding functions in terms of orthonormal function systems, Fourier series, Fourier transform, Dirac delta-function) Probability (basic notions of set theory, outcomes, events, sample space, probability, conditional probability, Bayes' rule, permutations and combinations, random variables, expected value, variance, binomial, Poisson, and normal distributions, central limit theorem).
