    • ( Exchange Programme )
    • Intermediate Theoretical Methods is a basic course required for undergraduate students in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The course covers several topics, including complex functions and applications, integral transforms, calculus of variations, conformal mapping and its applications, probability theory, and statistical methods. The primary objective is to develop those parts of the mathematical methods that are essential to students majored in physics. After taking this mathematical physics course, students will have a solid foundation of mathematics and problem-solving skills, which form a solid foundation for the up-coming physics courses.
    • Course Syllabus:
    • After completing the course, students should be able to:
      1. Understand the theory of analytic functions;
      2. Apply the theory of residues to evaluate various integrals;
      3. Use Fourier transform and Laplace transform to solve physics problem;
      4. Be familiar with the calculus of variations;
      5. Apply the method of conformal mapping to solve related problems;
      6. Be familiar with the common probability distributions and statistical methods in physics.
