Course description and aims

In this course we will teach "vector calculus", that is a calculus for scalar fields (single-valued functions) and vector fields (multivalued functions) . Each lecture will be followed by a recitation (a problem-solving session). This course will be succeeded by "Introduction to Analysis IV" in the fourth quarter.

The students will learn basic operations of vector fields, such as "divergence" or "rotation". They will also learn "Green's theorem", which is a multivariable analogue of "the fundamental theorem of calculus".

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students are expected to:
-- be able to calculate inner and outer products
-- be able to calculate line integrals of vector fields along curves
-- be familiar with parametrization of curves and surfaces
-- understand the meaning of gradient, divergence, and rotation, and be able to calculate them
-- understand what Green's theorem means and know how to use it

Keywords

Outer product, vector fields, line integral, gradient, divergence, rotation, Green's theorem on the plane

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

This is a standard lecture course with recitation sessions. Homework will be assigned every week. There will be occasional quizzes.
