Course detail

Selected Parts from Mathematics II

FEKT-BPA-VPMAcad. year: 2020/2021

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.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students completing this course should be able to:
- calculate improper multiple integral on unbounded regions and from unbounded functions.
- apply a weighted function and a delta function to solving of linear differential equations.
- select an optimal solution method for given differential equation.
- investigate a stability of solutions of systems of differential equations.


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.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods include lectures and demonstration practises . Course is taking advantage of exercise bank and Maple exercises on server UMAT. Students have to write a single project/assignment during the course.

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 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)).
