The course aims to teach beyond rules and theorems, the mathematical viewpoint and thinking , in order to develop combinatorial ability to solve problems.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- know, calculate the equation of a line in space, the equation of a plane recognize basic forms of surfaces.
- Calculate partial derivative, calculate extrema of a function of two variables and constrained extrema .
- Calculate a double integral and to know its usage in applications (volume of a solid, surface of a plane area, center of mass, moment of inertia)
- Calculate an integral on a surface or any curve and to know their usages in finding an area of asurface, the work on a curve and also to use the Green and Stokes Theorems.
- To find the trigonometrical form a complex number and to calculate the roots of a complex number and also the logarithm of a complex number.
- Differentiate and to find an integral of a complex fuanction (Cauchy theorem)
- Know the Laurent series and the integral residues.
