OVERVIEW

The course "Mathematical Analysis II" aims to provide students with some mathematical tools, both theoretical and computational, useful for engineering and application-oriented topics.

The course will be focused on series of functions, Fourier series, Laplace transforms, equation and systems of linear differential equations, curves, surfaces and related integrals, conservative vector fields and Gauss-Green formulas.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The main objective of the course is to provide students the basic tools related to numerical and power series, Fourier series, systems of ordinary differential equations, multivariate integration, Laplace transform, and vector fields.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam consists of a written and an oral examination.

The written test consists in solving exercises on the various topics of the course. The written exam must be done before the oral exam and can be taken either in previous sessions or in the same session in which the student intends to take the oral exam. Only students who have previously passed the written exam with a score greater than or equal to 16/30 can access the oral exam. At least 2 exam sessions will be available for the winter session (mid-January and February) and 3 exam sessions for the summer session (June, July and September).

ASSESSMENT METHODS

During the written test the student will have to solve some exercises concerning the arguments of the course. 

During the oral examination the student must highlight critical analytical skills and must be able to apply the main theorems for the solution of simple exercises.

FURTHER INFORMATION

Attendance is not compulsory but strongly recommended to all students.

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.
