Course Page of   MA 508 Mathematical Methods



Lectures:  Wednesdays & Fridays: 9h30-10h55


Tutorials : Thursdays: 10h35-11h30

Quizzes on :  31st January, 19th March.

Syllabus  Integral equations, Calculus of Variations, Asymptotic expansions.

Texts   (1). Problems and Exercises in Integral equations by Krasnov, (2). Problems and Exercises in Calculus of variations by Krasnov, (3). Courant & Hilbert, Methods of Mathematical Physics Vol.1, (4). Linear Integral equations by Tricomi, (5). Introduction to the Calculus of Variations by Hans Sagan


Emphasis will be on solving problems from above mentioned texts. Exams like GATE, CSIR-UGC JRF feature some questions from this course, all of which can be answered; and answers are likely to be correct all the time!



The course consists of 3 different topics: Integral equations, Calculus of Variations, Asymyptotic expansions in the ratio 2:2:1 roughly.
