OVERVIEW

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

The course will be focused on functions of one and several real variables, on the related differential and integral calculus, on the resolution of ordinary differential equations and series of functions.

## AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course introduces general mathematical notions and tools at the basis of engineering modeling, related to the study of the functions of one or more real variables. In particular, the concept of limit and continuity, the differential and integral calculus, also of functions of several real variables, the resolution of ordinary differential equations, the analysis of curves and surfaces, and the study of the convergence of numerical series and series of functions.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Topics of this course include the study of functions of one and several variables, including limits, continuity, differentials and integrals, gradients, Hessian matrices, max/min unconstrained optimization. Moreover, sequences, first order differential equations, higher order linear differential equations, series of real numbers, series of functions.

PREREQUISITES

Elementary algebra: literal calculus, polynomials, equations and inequalities, trigonometry.

Teaching methods

72 hours of theoretical lessons, 48 hours of classroom practices. During the theoretical lessons the definitions and the theorems will be presented with many examples and applications. During the other part of the course many exercises will be solved.

In addition, a tutor will solve some exercises in extra (optional) lesson hours.

## EXAMS

Exam description

The final exam consists of a written test and an oral exam. The student must obtain an evaluation of at least 16/30 in the written test to access the oral exam.

Assessment methods

During the written test the student will have to solve some exercises concerning the arguments of the course.

During the oral examination the student must highlight critical analytical skills and must be able to apply the main theorems for the solution of easy exercises.
