Last modified: 25 Sep 2019 09:58


Course Overview

The aim of the course is to provide an introduction to Integral Calculus and the theory of sequences and series, to discuss their applications to the theory of functions, and to give an introduction to the theory of functions of several variables. 

This provides the necessary mathematical background for further study in mathematics, physics, computing science, chemistry and engineering.

Course Description

The course is a continuation of Calculus I from the 1st session. It develops the basic ideas concerning the integration of a function of one variable. It introduces Taylor series and determines these series for the most common functions. It also provides a first introduction to differential equations which are fundamental in applications of Mathematics to other sciences.

Syllabus

  • Convergence of limits and their calculation.
  • Definite and indefinite integrals.
  • Series and their convergence.
  • Convergence tests for series.
  • Power series and Taylor series.
  • Partial and directional derivatives.
