## MAT 42143 ABSTRACT ALGEBRA (4)

Develops rigorous understanding of algebraic structures.  Students construct and critique proof of properties concerning finite groups, finite simple groups, rings, integral domains, fields, polynomial rings, ring factorization, extension fields, finite fields, Sylow Theorems, and Lagrange's Theorem.  Prerequisite:  A "C" or better in MAT 30243 Transitions to Higher Mathematics.

## MAT 43143 INTRODUCTION TO COMPLEX ANALYSIS (3)

This course introduces the theory of functions of a complex variable.  Topics include the study of analytic functions, The Cauchy-Riemann equations, logarithmic and other elementary functions of a complex variable, integration of complex functions, the Cauchy integral theorem and its consequences, conformal mappings, power series expansions, residue theorem and applications of definite integrals as they related to mathematical, physics and/or engineering problems.

## MAT 43443 NUMERICAL METHODS (3)

Introduces numerical techniques and algorithms fundamental to scientific computer work including discussion of error, roots of equations, interpolation, systems of equations, numerical integration and methods of solution of ordinary differential equations.  Prerequisite: MAT 21144 Calculus II.

## MAT 44043 INTRODUCTION TO PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS (3)

This course introduces the theory of partial differential equations, including diffusion, elliptic and hyperbolic, using mathematical tools, real-world examples and applications.  Topics include a derivation of the wave equation, Laplace equation, heat equation, Fourier series and integrals, boundary value problems, Bessel functions and Legendre polynomials, and numerical methods for approximating solutions.
