Aim

The aim of the course is to give basic knowledge in mathematical analysis. The course will also create qualification for mathematical treatment of technical problems in future profession and supply a good base for further studies.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • define the concepts of limit and continuity and calculate limits
  • define the concepts of derivative and differentiation and use the definition of derivative
  • calculate the derivatives of elementary functions
  • use the fundamental rules of differentiation
  • outline the elementary functions and account for their properties
  • define the concepts of increasing (decreasing) function and local maximum (minimum) value
  • construct graphs of functions and calculate the absolute maximum (minimum) value of a function
  • define the concept of inverse function, calculate inverse functions and their derivatives
  • define the concepts of antiderivative, definite integral and improper integral
  • use the fundamental rules of integration
  • use the most common methods for solving differential equations
  • formulate, and in certain cases prove, fundamental theorems in analysis as, e. g. the connection between continuity and differentiation, the connection between area and antiderivatives and the mean-value theorem
  • interpret limits, derivatives and integrals geometrically
  • apply her/his knowledge of derivatives and integrals to simpler applied problems
  • understand how mathematics is build on definitions and theorems and have some basic knowledge of mathematical proof
