Learning Outcomes
1. Calculate first and higher order partial derivatives and differentials, apply chain rule and model problems associated with the concept of rate of change. 2. Calculate local and global extrema of multivariable functions in optimization problems. 3. Linearize scalar/vector fields. 4. Compute double and triple integrals (in cartesian, polar, cylindrical and spherical coordinates). 5. Parametrize curves and surfaces and calculate surface area. 6. Identify linear and central vector fields and perform calculations using gradient, divergence, rotation and Laplace operators in Cartesian, cylindrical, spherical coordinates. Also, to identify conservative, irrotational, incompressible fields and compute scalar/vector potential. 7. Study qualitative characteristics of vector fields (circulation - flux) with the use of line or surface integrals. 8. Connect between the concepts of circulation and rotation and the between the concepts of flux and divergence using Green’s, Gauss and Stokes theorems. 9. Apply the basic tools of vector calculus in electromagnetism( Maxwell equations, Gauss law on electromagnetism, calculation of electric field, work, scalar potential of electric field etc. )
