Mathematical Description of Natural Phenomena
This lecture is going to let students learn mathematics literacy applied to realistic problems according to the differentiation and integration which play an important role not only in the explanation of physical phenomenon, but also in the explanation of natural phenomenon, social phenomenon, and so on. In other words, after learning various forms of differential equations applied to realistic problems, we can say that the fundamental or more complicated phenomena will become universal after de
Structural Mechanics II and Exercises
After showing how to use "conjugate simultaneous linear equation" to express both "equilibrium equation" and "transformation equation" of the mechanics of truss structure as well as using an identity equation which is just as simple as linear algebra, we are going to explain how to prove the law of virtual work, and also explain the significance of it through examples.
