Add On Course

This course gives an idea on various mathematical operations in physics. This course includes vector algebra, basic properties of matrices and different types of matrices. This course also include second order differentials equations and specials functions like Gamma functions and beta functions. This course helps the students to do various derivations and to form eqations of theories in physics.

- To introduce various Mathematical operations practiced in Physics
- To give an introduction about special functions.

By successfully completing the course students will be able to do the Mathematical operation and solve the difference equations

Course Duration: 35 hrs
