Objectives of the Course
Students entering PG program usually find that their mathematical foundation is inadequate to pursue research for their thesis. It is also a fact that, for them to achieve the required level of mathematical maturity entirely through self-study is difficult. This course is designed with an objective to provide the essential knowledge required to remove this inadequacy. The content of the course is designed keeping in mind the mixed audience coming from electronics and communication engineering and computer science and engineering disciplines. At the conclusion of this course, students should have a sound understanding of what mathematics is about, and should have acquired a level of mathematical literacy that would enable them to see its relevance in their own domain of knowledge.

Course Outline
  • Sets, Relations and Functions [4]: Order, Equivalence and Correspondence
  • Groups, Rings and Fields [3, 5]: Permutations, Symmetries, Polynomials
  • Vector Space [5]: Basis, Linear transformations, Norm, Inner-Product, Orthogonality, Metric space introduction [4], Finite Dimensional Vector Space [5]: System of linear equations, Eigen values, Eigen vectors, Matrix inverse, Least squares and Pseudo inverse, Change of basis and similarity transform (25 Hrs)
  • Introduction to Graphs and Connections with Linear Algebra: Adjacency and Incident matrices, Graph spectrum, Graph Partitioning and Clustering, Shortest path algorithms [6] (6 Hrs)
  • Numerical Techniques: Basic concepts of round off errors, floating point arithmetic, convergence, Numerical schemes for Bisection method, Newton Rapson method, error analysis for iterative methods; computing roots of polynomials, Direct method for solving linear systems, numerical factorization and Eigen value problems [7] (09 Hrs)
Course Outcomes
CO1 Students will understand the need of various mathematical structures and also be able to model a given engineering problem mathematically. CO2 Students will be able to grasp the concepts of data (data processing system) represen- tation and will be able to use the basic results from linear algebra and function analysis to process them.
