MA6251 MATHEMATICS – II L T P C
• To make the student acquire sound knowledge of techniques in solving ordinary differential
equations that model engineering problems.
• To acquaint the student with the concepts of vector calculus, needed for problems in all
• To develop an understanding of the standard techniques of complex variable theory so as to
enable the student to apply them with confidence, in application areas such as heat conduction,
elasticity, fluid dynamics and flow the of electric current.
• To make the student appreciate the purpose of using transforms to create a new domain in
which it is easier to handle the problem that is being investigated.
