NIGB14014U Mathematics for Geoscientists
BSc programme in Geology-Geoscience
Mathematics represents the grammar by which scientists express the physical and chemical laws governing natural processes, as well as make quantitative predictions of the evolution of these processes. The course aims at presenting, through theory and exercises, the basic mathematical notions that have simple, yet important applications to the Geosciences.
Derivatives and integrals of functions
Vectors and linear algebra
Notions of statistics and spectral analysis
Handle mathematical expressions and equations relevant to the Geosciences.
Cast in quantitative terms the qualitative description of a problem/process relevant to the Geosciences.
Please see Absalon.
- Theory exercises
Continuous feedback is provided to students during the course. This is based primarely on the exercises done in class, and is done in the form of a collective feedback to the group of students during class time, as well as individual feedback during meetings for questions.
