|SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINARY SECTOR||MAT/07|
The course Mathematical Methods for Engineering (cod.72440) is borrowed from the module Mathematical Analysis II (cod. 60243).
The module Mathematical Analysis II (code 60243) deals with some issues of Mathematical Analysis with the aim to complete the basic learning and introduce some theoretical tools used in engineering science. The main topics concern with the study of maximum and minimum constrained for functions of more real variables, the integration for functions of two and three variables, the theory of differential forms and the Fourier's series.
This module aims to provide the student with the knowledge of the following mathematical conceps:
1) Maximum and minimum constrained for functions of more real variables
2) Integration on R^2 and R^3. Integration of differential forms. Gradient, divergence, curl and their properties.
3) Fourier series.
The main learning outcomes consist of technical skills about the following issues:
Calculation of maximum and minimum constrained of functions of more real variables. Evaluation of integrals on R^2 and R^3. Integration of differential forms. Calculus of gradient, divergence, curl. Fourier series expansions.
Basic knowledge on linear algebra and differential calculus are required as prerequisites. In particular, the student must be familiar with the analysis of functions of one and more variables, numerical series, series of functions, power series and ordinary differential equations.
Both theory and exercises are presented by the teacher in the usual way. Moreover some tutorial exercitations can be carried out during the semester.
- maximum and minimum constrained for functions of more real variables
- integrals on R^2 and R^3
- curves and surfaces in R^3. Vector analysis: differential forms and path integrals, closed and exact differential forms, gradient, curl, divergence. Stokes Theorem.
- Fourier series.

Office hours: At the end of lectures or by appointment.
The class will start according to the academic calendar.
All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
Written and oral tests. Oral test, which students can access only if the grade of written test is at least 10, has to be taken in the same exam session of written test.
If the University introduces again the obligation to perform even partially online exams (as happened in part of the academic years 2019-20, 2020-21 and 2021-22), the exam will consist only of oral test.
Students with DSA certification ("specific learning disabilities"), disability or other special educational needs are advised to contact the teacher at the beginning of the course to agree on teaching and examination methods that, in compliance with the teaching objectives, take account of individual learning arrangements and provide appropriate compensatory tools.
The written examination consists in some exercises about the topics covered in this course. In this test the ability to apply theoretical results in concrete situations is evaluated.
In the written test it is possible to consult the notes and textbooks.
In the oral exam a discussion of the written examination is done; moreover some questions are asked on the course content and/or about the solution of some exercises about the topics covered in this course. In such way they are assessed the understanding, the knowledge of the concepts, and the skills in using them, acquired by the students.
Attendance is recommended.
Students are suggested to enroll in AulaWeb, in order to be able to get further information by the teachers about the course.
