The main goal of the course is to enhance the knowledge of calculus from the previous semester and explain the basic principles
and methods of higher calculus. The emphasis is put on handling the practical use of these methods for solving specific problems.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Classes are compulsory (presence at lectures, however, will not be controlled), absence at numerical classes has to be excused.
