OVERVIEW

The course "Mathematical Analysis II" aims to provide students with some mathematical tools, both theoretical and computational, useful for engineering and application-oriented topics.

The course will be focused on series of functions, Fourier series, Laplace transforms, equation and systems of linear differential equations, curves, surfaces and related integrals, conservative vector fields and Gauss-Green formulas.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The main objective of the course is to provide students tools for differential and integral calculus and methods for numerical integration for Cauchy problems and  for definite integrals.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Topics of this course include the study of series of real numbers, series of functions, Fourier series, Laplace transforms, equations and systems of linear differential equations, curves and surfaces, conservative vector fields and Gauss-Green formulas.

PREREQUISITES

All the topics of the I year courses “Analisi Matematica I” and “Geometria”.

TEACHING METHODS

52 hours of lessons in classroom, where the definitions and the theorems will be presented with heuristic examples together with the solution of related exercises.
