Selected Parts from Mathematics for Engineers
FEKT-MPC-VPAAcad. year: 2020/2021
The aim of this course is to introduce the basics of calculation of local, constrained and absolute extrema of functions of several variables, double and triple inegrals, line and surface integrals in a scalar-valued field and a vector-valued field including their physical applications. In the field of multiple integrals , main attention is paid to calculations of multiple integrals on elementary regions and utilization of polar, cylindrical and sferical coordinates, calculalations of a potential of vector-valued field and application of integral theorems.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students completing this course should be able to:
- calculate local, constrained and absolute extrema of functions of several variables.
- calculate multiple integrals on elementary regions.
- transform integrals into polar, cylindrical and sferical coordinates.
- calculate line and surface integrals in scalar-valued and vector-valued fields.
- apply integral theorems in the field theory.
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. Especially, the student should be able to calculate derivative (including partial derivatives) and integral of elementary functions.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Teaching methods include lectures and demonstration practical classes (computer and numerical) . Course is taking advantage of exercise bank and maplets on UMAT server.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
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 extrema of functions of several variables (10 points), two from multiple integrals (2 X 10 points), two from line integrals (2 x 10 points) and two from surface integrals (2 x 10 points)).
