Recent Units

  • MXB326 Computational Methods 2 (2021)
    This unit focusses on the theoretical development and practical implementation (in MATLAB) of finite volume methods and Newton-Krylov techniques for solving nonlinear partial differential equations of advection-diffusion-reaction type.
  • MXB103 Introductory Computational Mathematics (2017-2021)
    This unit focusses on the theoretical development and practical implementation (in MATLAB) of numerical methods for differentiation, integration, differential equations, interpolation and linear systems of equations.
  • EGB242 Signal Analysis (2018-2021)
    The unit focusses on signal and system analysis in the time and frequency domain in the context of electrical and electronic circuits. I teach the maths component of this unit, which focusses on foundational mathematical knowledge in Fourier series, Fourier and Laplace transforms and related concepts.
  • MXB324 Computational Fluid Dynamics (2016)
    This unit focussed on the theoretical development and practical implementation (in MATLAB) of finite volume methods and Newton-Krylov techniques for solving nonlinear partial differential equations applied to an industry-specific groundwater management problem.
  • MXB222 Computational Linear Algebra (2015)
    This unit focussed on the theoretical development and practical implementation (in MATLAB) of finite difference methods for solving linear partial differential equations as well as direct and iterative methods for solving linear systems of equations.
