|CREDITS||12 credits during the 1st year of 8720 Mechanical Engineering (L-9) GENOVA|
|SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINARY SECTOR||MAT/05|
|TEACHING LOCATION||GENOVA (Mechanical Engineering)|
The course aims at providing the student with basic operative knowledge on differential and integral calculus for functions of one and two real variables, with some attention to mathematical rigour. Some of the founding elements of mathematical modeling are developed in the second half of the course, such as the elementary theory of ordinary differential equations.
