# Mathematics II

FSI-2MAcad. year: 2023/2024

Differential and integral calculus of functions of several variables including problems of finding maxima and minima and calculating limits, derivatives, differentials, double and triple integrals. Also dealt are the line and surface integrals both in a scalar and a vector field. At seminars, the MAPLE mathematical software is used.

FORM OF EXAMINATIONS:

The exam has a written part (at most 75 points) and an oral part (at most 25 points).

WRITTEN PART OF EXAMINATION (at most 75 points)

In a 120-minute written test, students have to solve the following four problems:

Problem 1: In basic properties of functions of several variables: domains, partial derivatives, gradient (at most 10 points)

Problem 2: In differential calculus of functions of several variables (at most 22 points)

Problem 3: In double and triple integral (at most 20 points)

Problem 4: In line and surface integral (at most 23 points)

The above problems can also contain a theoretical question.

ORAL PART OF EXAMINATION (max 25 points)

• Discussion based on the written test: students have to explain how they solved each problem. Should the student fail to explain it sufficiently, the test results will not be accepted and will be classified by 0 points.

• Possible theoretic question.

• Possible simple problem to be solved straight away.

• The results achieved in the written tests in seminars may be taken into account within the oral examination.

FINAL CLASSIFICATION:

0-49 points: F

50-59 points: E

60-69 points: D

70-79 points: C

80-89 points: B

90-100 points: A

Attendance at lectures is recommended, attendance at seminars is required. The lessons are planned on the basis of a weekly schedule. The way of compensation for an absence is fully at the discretion of the teacher.

Aims

Students will be made familiar with differential and integral calculus of more variables. They will be able to apply this knowledge in various engineering tasks. After completing the course students will be prepared for further study of physics, mechanics and other technical disciplines.
