MATH35012, Wave Motion

Revision before you begin

As with most level 3/4 applied courses, this material makes heavy use of vector calculus, linear PDEs and methods for ODEs. Before starting this course you might wish to review:
Some very basic things that should be trivial at this level.
You do not need to have done any 'fluid mechanics' courses before.

Problem sheets
