Learning Outcomes
After the completion of the course the students have acquired the basic principles of differential calculus of multivariable functions as well as those of vector functions. They have also developed the ability to solve simple and more complex problems on the specific area of mathematics
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in teams
  • Generate new research ideas
Course Content (Syllabus)
Basic topological concepts in n-dimensional space - Differential calculus of real functions of several variables with real arguments (geometrical picture of a function of several variables, limits, continuity, partial derivatives, differentiability, total differentials) - Composite function of several variables (Chain rule, Eulers theorem, the mean value theorem, Taylor's theorem) - Implicit function of several variables (Jacobians, transformations) - Calculus of real function with vector variables and vector functions of vector variables (divergence and curl of a vector function) - Geometrical application of differential calculus of several variables - Extreme values of a function of several variables and extreme values under constrains
