This course deals with techniques in multivariable calculus and linear algebra which have applications in many areas of science, commerce and engineering. It is also preparation for many courses in advanced mathematics.
This course forms the final part of the core mathematics sequence MATH102 - MATH103 - MATH201. It covers techniques in multivariable calculus and vector calculus and interesting applications in many areas of science, commerce and engineering. It is required for all Math majors, and is the foundation for students who want to proceed to study more advanced topics in mathematics.Topics covered: geometry of multivariable functions, partial derivatives, linearisation, multivariate chain rule, implicit function theorem, multivariate Taylor series; multivariate optimisation, sufficient conditions for optimality, Lagrange multipliers for optimisation problems; iterated integrals, polar coordinates; Jacobian determinants; parametric curves, tangent vectors, line integrals, work integrals; div, grad, curl; surface integrals; volume integrals; Green's Theorem; Stokes Theorem; Divergence Theorem; physical applications.
