Learning outcomes

At the end of the course, the student has the knowledge of advanced mathematical analysis, identifying it as a useful and creative central science. He has the knowledge of differentiability and integrability for functions of several real variables and of punctual and uniform convergence of series of functions. He knows how to apply this knowledge to the solution of problems posed by pure and applied sciences. He knows how to solve practical optimization and measurement problems. He has autonomy of judgment about the mathematical formalization of simple problems of applied sciences.

Course contents

Differential calculus for functions of several real variables. Taylor's formula. Local maxima and minima. Local invertibility and implicit functions. Constrained extrema.

Path integrals. Vector fields, potentials.

Teaching methods

The course is structured in lectures in the classroom which illustrate the fundamental concepts relating to the properties of real functions of several real variables and to differential equations. The lessons are always integrated with examples and counterexamples related to the fundamental concepts illustrated. In addition, many exercises are performed.

Assessment methods

The examination consists of a preliminary written test and an oral one.

The written test lasts three hours, consists of six exercises related to the arguments of the course. In order to participate to the written test the student must register at least three days before the test through AlmaEsami [https://almaesami.unibo.it/] .

The written test remains valid for the oral exam in the same examination period.

The oral test follows the written test; it mainly concerns the theoretical aspects of the course. The student must show to know the concepts explained during the course (in particular definitions, theorems and their proofs) and how to connect them.

In the period between the first and second cycle the student can take a partial examination on the topics of the first module of the course. The rules of partial examination are the same as for the total examination.

The student who have passed the examination relative to the first module can take the examination relative to the second module within July. After this date the first partial examination is canceled.
