Course Page of MA 508 Mathematical Methods 
Lectures: Wednesdays & Fridays: 9h3010h55
Tutorials : Thursdays: 10h3511h30 Quizzes on : 31st January, 19th March. Syllabus Integral equations, Calculus of Variations, Asymptotic expansions. Texts (1). Problems and Exercises in Integral equations by Krasnov et.al., (2). Problems and Exercises in Calculus of variations by Krasnov et.al., (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, CSIRUGC 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.
