  • MTH 511 - Limitations of Measurement
    Measurements are made to make a judgment about something. It can be to judge the accuracy of data, to accept or reject a product or to determine the price charged in everyday commerce. The judgment made can only be as sound as the measurement is reliable. The error in making a measurement limits its usefulness. This course will introduce basic concepts associated with measurement and the uncertainty in measurement, including the source of error in measurement. Examples taken from the physical, biological and medical sciences will illustrate how the limitations of measurements can alter people's perceptions and the impact this can have on issues such as government policies and medical treatments.

  • MTH 732 - Introduction to Fluid Dynamics
    We derive equations governing fluid flows from the basic physical conservation laws. Exact analytic solutions to various elementary flow problems are obtained. We consider viscous flow, irrotational flow, boundary layers and water waves. Flow instability will also be examined. Mathematical results are related to phenomena observed in aerodynamics, flow through conduits and geophysical flows.
