1  At the end of the course the students will be able to

The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
Content
 Scalar and vectorvalued real functions of several variables, topology, limit and continuity
 Differentiability, partial and directional derivatives, tangent plane, gradient and Jacobian matrix
 Higher order partial derivatives and Taylor polynomial
 Unconstrained and constrained extrema, Lagrange multipliers
 Multiple integrals and changes of variables
 Line and surface integrals, circulation and flux of a vector field
 Notion of boundary and Stokestype theorems
Teaching methods
Lectures in a large auditorium, supervised exercise (APE) and problem (APP) sessions in small groups, possibly online exercises.
Evaluation methods
Students will be evaluated with an individual written exam, based on the abovementioned objectives. Results from continuous assessment may also be taken into account for the final grade.
