WEEK DATE COMMENTS
1 TUESDAY 20/02/2001
In the first lecture of the second semester we talked about differential equations and
the methods of solving first order differential equations which are by separation of
variables or by integrating factor. We went through some examples solving
equations with the separation of variables method.
In this lecture we went through some examples solving equations using the
integrating factor method.
2 TUESDAY 27/02/2001
Continuing with the ways to solve differential equations we went through more
examples solving equations using the integrating factor method.
This Thursday we started talking about homogenous equations and how they are
3 TUESDAY 06/03/2001
This Tuesday we started talking about second order differential equations and went
through some examples of the book.
In this lecture we started talking about the particular integral, what it is, how it is used
to solve second order equations. Also we went through some examples solving
second order equations using the particular integral.
4 TUESDAY 13/03/2001
This Thursday we discussed about the non-homogenous equations and how they Quite difficult
are solved, by solving some examples of the book. subject.
Today we wrote the first test in all the topics we had discussed up to now.
5 TUESDAY 20/03/2001
This Tuesday we talked about the numerical methods for solving equations of the
form dy/dx=f(x,y(x)). We discussed about Euler's method and Euler's modified Quite difficult
method. Also we went through some examples solving equations using these subject.
In this lecture we discussed about the Runge-Kutta method to solve differential Not in Croft &
equations by going through some examples of the book. Davison.
EASTER BREAK 24/03/2001 to 16/04/2001
6 TUESDAY 17/04/2001
In the first lecture after the Easter vacations we mainly talked about the mean value
and data discrete continuous by going through some examples of the book.
Today we started talking about probability and compound events. Again we went
through some examples of the book.
7 TUESDAY 24/04/2001
This Tuesday we discussed about probability distribution. Furthermore we talked
about binomial distribution and Poisson distribution by going through some
Today we analyzed furthermore Poisson distribution by going through some
examples of the book.
8 TUESDAY 01/05/2001
This week we entered the chapter of matrices. We talked about what is a matrix,
how we add and subtract matrices, how we multiply them and how we can find the
inverse of a matrix. Also we went through some examples of the book relative to
In this lecture we discussed about the Determinant of a matrix. We talked about how
it is derived and what are the properties of the Determinants of matrices.
9 TUESDAY 08/05/2001
Today we went through some examples of the book relative to matrices and their
Determinants. Also we talked about the adjoint of a matrix.
In this lecture we talked about how we can find the inverse of a matrix using the needs some
method [A|I]=[I|B]. more
10 TUESDAY 15/05/2001
In this lecture we discussed about the Applications of Eigenvalues. Also we went
through a couple of examples relative to them.
Today we learned about how we can use the inverse matrix to solve linear
equations. Also we talked about Cramer's Rule and it can help up in solving linear
11 TUESDAY 22/05/2001
Today we wrote another test in all the topics we had discussed after the Easter
vacations up to now.
12 TUESDAY 29/05/2001
In this lecture we started revising about the various subjects we had discussed after
the Easter vacations.
In this lecture we went through the questions of the first exam we took on March
about differential equations.
