Docent  Kjell Holmåker


For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.


The course provides basic knowledge of
the fundamental theories within mathematical analysis.


Part A:
Ordinary differential equations: linear equations of the first order, separable equations, linear differential equations of arbitrary order with constant coefficients, systems of equations, some special types such as Euler's differential equation. Mathematical models giving rise to differential equations. Numerical solution of differential equations.
Taylor's formula, computation of limits, l'Hospital's rules.
Difference equations. Sequences, series, power series, convergence criteria, solution of differential equations by means of power series. Uniform convergence of function sequences and function series.
The vector space Rn, polar and spherical coordinates, some topological concepts.

Part B:
Functions of several variables. Partial derivatives, differentiability, the chain rule, directional derivative, gradient, level sets, tangent planes.
Taylor's formula for functions of several variables, characterization of stationary points.
Double integrals, iterated integration, change of variables, triple integrals, generalized integrals.
Space curves, arc length. Line integrals, Green's formula in the plane, potentials and exact differential forms.
Sufaces in R3, surface area, surface integrals, divergence and curl, Gauss' and Stokes' theorems.
Some physical problems leading to partial differential equations. Partial differential equations of the first order.
Functional determinants, implicit functions. Extremal problems for functions of several variables, Lagrange's multiplier rule.
