Course detail

Selected Parts from Mathematics II

FEKT-BPA-VPMAcad. year: 2023/2024

The aim of this course is to introduce the basics of calculation of improper multiple integral and basics of solving of linear differential equations using delta function and weighted function.
In the field of improper multiple integral, main attention is paid to calculations of improper multiple integrals on unbounded regions and from unbounded functions.
In the field of linear differential equations, the following topics are covered: Eliminative solution method, method of eigenvalues and eigenvectors, method of variation of constants, method of undetermined coefficients, stability of solutions.

Entry knowledge

The student should be able to apply the basic knowledge of analytic geometry and mathamatical analysis on the secondary school level: to explain the notions of general, parametric equations of lines and surfaces and elementary functions.
From the BMA1 and BMA2 courses, the basic knowledge of differential and integral calculus and solution methods of linear differential equations with constant coefficients is demanded. Especially, the student should be able to calculate derivative (including partial derivatives) and integral of elementary functions.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

The student's work during the semestr (written tests and homework) is assessed by maximum 30 points.
Written examination is evaluated by maximum 70 points. It consist of seven tasks (one from improper multiple integral (10 points), three from application of a weighted function and a delta function (3 X 10 points) and three from analytical solution method of differential equations (3 x 10 points)).
The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.
