# MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS

OVERVIEW

The lectures are delivered in Italian.

This is a semi-annual course, devoted to limits, differential calculus and integral calculus for functions of one real variable and to numerical series.

## AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Capability in following a line of logical reasoning; understanding of the essential properties of differential and integral calculus for functions of one variable and of numerical series. Acquisition of a sufficient calculation ability.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The main objective is to supply the fundamentals of differential and integral calculus in one variable and of numerical series: these are some fundamental instruments in Mathematical Analysis, essential to get a well grounded knowledge in the basic branches of Mathematics and for the understanding of simultaneous and next courses.

**Expected learning outcomes:**

The students will become acquainted with the concepts and proofs carried out in class and how they are used in practice to solve problems; moreover they will know how to produce easy examples on topics covered in this course.

In particular, students are expected to develop the following skills: operations on limits and derivatives, study of functions of one variable, integral calculus (indefinite, definite and improper integrals), study of integral functions, study of numerical series.

Teaching methods

Lectures (90 hours).

Both theory and exercises are presented by the teachers in the classroom on the blackboard. Moreover some tutorial exercitations will be carried out during the semester.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Real numbers, cartesian coordinates in a plane, functions of one real variable, monotonic functions, composition and invertibility of functions, elementary functions, supremum and infimum, limits of functions, limits of sequences, infinitesimal and infinite functions, continuous functions and their properties, derivatives, derivation rules, derivatives of elementary functions, sign of derivatives in the study of monotonicity and convexity, maxima and minima, theorems of Fermat, Rolle, Lagrange, de l'Hopital, Taylor expansions and applications to critical points, definite and indefinite integrals, fundamental theorem of integral calculus, integral functions, improper integrals. Numerical series.

## EXAMS

Exam description

The exam consists of a written and an oral test. In order to access to the oral test, the student will be required of an evaluation of at least 10/30. Oral test has to be taken in the same exam appeal of written test.

Furthermore, during the semester, there will be two partial written tests. The students that will pass them (that is, obtaining an average greater than or equal to 15/30 and, in each partial test, an evaluation of at least 10/30), will be enabled to access directly the oral exam; this is valid for all the exam appeals for the academic year, hence until September included.

Assessment methods

The written examination consists in some exercises about the topics covered in this course. In such a test is proven the ability to solve problems relating to calculation of limits, derivatives and integrals of one variable functions, and study of properties of one variable functions.

The test lasts two hours and it is possible to consult the notes and textbooks; the same procedures apply to each of the two partial written tests.

In the oral exam a discussion of the written examination is done; moreover some questions are asked on the course content and/or about the solution of some exercises about the topics covered in this course. In such way they are assessed the understanding and the knowledge of the concepts and reasoning skills acquired by the students.
