OVERVIEW

The basic topics in calculus of severable variables are covered: numerical and Fourier series, differential calculus, study of maxima and minima of functions of two real variables.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The students will become acquainted with the most important topics regarding functions of several variables and how they are used in practice. The only proof that are presented are those which show fundamental principles, and are free of technicalities.
 

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course want to give the elementar notions on the numerical and power series, and the basic knowdlege on the differential and  for real and vectorial functions.

At the end, students should be able to:  

-correctly calculate elementar and standard calculations concerning numerical and power series, partial and directional derivates,              -determine maxima e minima for functions of several variables, 

-find the Fourier series of periodic functions.

PREREQUISITES

Teaching methods

Both theory and exercises are presented by classroom lessons held at the blackboard. The semester is 12 weeks long with four hours of theory and two hours of exercsces each week. Some tutorial exercitation will be carried out during the semester. 

 

Attendance is mandatory.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

This course covers differential, integral and vector calculus for functions of more than one variable. Topics include:

  • Sequences and series of functions.
  • Fourier series.
  • Functions of several variables, continuity, differentiability, derivative.
