This course meets two times per week for lecture. Topic covered in this course include:
Grades are based on the following criteria:
The mathematical methods presented in this course will enhance students' ability to solve numerical problems relating to physics. It is important for students to have knowledge of the various methods used in analysis, since medical physicists use sophisticated data analysis techniques.
