Department assigned to the subject: Department of Mathematics

Type: Basic Core
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS


Branch of knowledge: Engineering and Architecture

Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Calculus I Linear Algebra
The student must be able to state, solve and understand, from a mathematical point of view, problems related to Engineering and of Energy Engineering. First of all, a comprehensive approach to Euclidean spaces with a special emphasis in the two-dimensional and three-dimensional cases as well as their most relevant subsets will be done. He must handle the main properties of functions in several variables related to continuity, differentiability and integrability both in the scalar and vector cases. The study of problems related to optimisation, with and without constraints, constitutes a nice application of Taylor formula and local extrema. Iterated integrals on domains as well as the integration on lines and surfaces will provide the basic background for the analysis of areas and volumes as well as the computation of some characteristics of rigid solids. The computation of such integrals will be used as applications of the most important theorems of integral Calculus. By the end of this subject, students will be able to have: 1.- Knowledge and understanding of the mathematical principles underlying the branch of energy engineering; 2.- The ability to a ly their knowledge and understanding to identify, formulate and solve mathematical problems using established methods; 3.- The ability to choose and apply relevant analytical and modelling methods; 4.- The ability to select and use appropriate tools and methods to solve mathematical problems; 5.- The ability to combine theory and practice to solve mathematical problems; 6.- Understanding of the applicable methods and techniques and their limitations.

Learning activities and methodology
The learning activities will be focused on - Magistral sessions devoted to the presentation of the basic concepts and results of every chapter as well as some exercises. The theoretical background will be supported by the basic monographs listed in the bibliography. - Problem sessions. Here we will solve questions and problems proposed in the magistral classes as well as individual homeworks in order to allow the self asessment of the students. - Continuous Evaluation: · Two partial tests concerning Differential Calculos (Chapters 1-5) and Integral Calculus (Chapters 6-11). · Individual assignments to be solved at Home. - Final exam.
