Mathematics Reform

We are supporting and developing a complete program in applied mathematics education from introductory undergraduate to graduate level. The program is characterized by the following main features:

Realization of the program

The program is realized through a series of books:

Applied Mathematics: Body & Soul Vol I-III
[Springer Autumn 2003]

Applied Mathematics: Body & Soul Vol IV Dynamical Systems
Applied Mathematics: Body & Soul Vol V Fluid Dynamics
Applied Mathematics: Body & Soul Vol VI Solid Mechanics
Applied Mathematics: Body & Soul Vol VII Electromagnetics
[to appear 2003/4]

Computational Differential Equations
[Studentlitteratur/Cambridge 1996]

and through various pieces of software referred to as the Mathematics Laboratory.

The program in practice

The full program is since the Fall of 2001 implemented for the 180 students of engineering and bio-engineering at Chalmers.
