AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

In the Analysis module we provide the tools for the comprehension and computation of double and triple integrals, of curvilinear integrals of scalar and vector functions, and we introduce the related theorems (divergence, Gauss-Green). We show how to deal with constrained optimization problems in several variables.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The first goal is the understanding of integral calculus for functions of two or three real variables: double and triple integrals, line and surface integrals of scalar and vector fields. We will discuss the divergence theorem.
The second objective is a general understanding of constrained optimization problems for functions of two or more variables.
