Course detail

Mathematical Analysis II F

FSI-TA2Acad. year: 2020/2021

The course Mathematical Analysis II is directly linked to the introductory course Mathematical Analysis I. It concerns differential and integral calculus of functions in several real variables. Students will acquire a theoretical background that is necessary in solving some particular problems in mathematics as well as in technical disciplines.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is lectured through lessons supported by exercises. The content of lessons is focused on a theoretical background of the subject. The exercises have a practical/computational character.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Course-unit credit: active attendance at the seminars, successful passing through two written tests (i.e. receiving at least one half of all possible points from each of them).

Exam: will be oral based (possibly will have also a written part). Students are supposed to discuss three selected topics from the lessons.

Language of instruction


Work placements

Not applicable.


Students should get familiar with basics of differential and integral calculus in several real variables. With such knowledge, various tasks of physical and engineering problems can be solved.

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

Seminars: obligatory.
