Learning outcomes

At the end of the course the student is familiar with the fundamental notions of the differential and integral calculus for functions of several variables and with related arguments (differential equations, linear integrals, etc). Moreover the student is able to use classical instruments from Mathematical Analysis in several different areas.

Course contents

Notes on metric spaces and R^n. Differential calculus for functions of several variables. Differentiable manifolds in R^n, constrained extrema. Differential equations and systems of differential equations. Curves in R^n, line integrals, vector fields. Guass, Green and Stoke's theorems. Multiple integrals in R^n. Sketches to L^1 and L^2 spaces. During the course we will solve several exercices, with particular regard to questions related to astrophysics.
