For this specialisation students are expected to already have a very high level of mathematical skills and/or training in physics, engineering or computer science based on their BSc studies. The student should be able to understand mathematical concepts at the level of mathematics for physics or engineering books, of which ‘Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences’ by Mary L. Boas is an example. The student shoud have completed mathematics courses covering calculus, linear algebra, vector analysis, fourier series and transforms and ordinary differential equations. The student should have a basic understanding of electromagnetism and have taken calculus-based introductory physics courses in mechanics and electromagnetism (at the level of, for instance, ‘Physics for Scientists and Engineers, with Modern Physics’ by R.A. Serway & J.W. Jewett).
