The aim of this course is to provide students the basic tools of differential and integral calculus of several variables. To achieve this goal students must acquire a range of expertise and capabilities. SPECIFIC LEARNING OBJECTIVES: - To understand the n-dimensional Euclidean space and in more depth n = 2 and 3. - To know the properties of scalar and vector functions of several variables. - To understand the concepts of continuity, differentiability and integrability. - To be able to handle optimization problems using optimization techniques. - To understand how to calculate double, triple, line and surface integrals. - To know and apply the main theorems of vector calculus: Green, Gauss, Stokes. - To understand how to apply the integral to calculate surface areas, volumes and solve some basic problems of Mathematical-Physics. SPECIFIC ABILITIES: - To be able to work with functions of several variables given in terms of a graphical, numerical or analytical description. - To understand the concept of differentiable function and ability to solve problems involving the concept. - To understand the concept of multiple integral, line and surface integral and its practical applications. GENERAL ABILITIES: - To understand the necessity of abstract thinking and formal mathematical proofs. - To acquire communicative skills in mathematics. - To acquire the ability to model real-world situations mathematically, with the aim of solving practical problems. - To improve problem-solving skills.
