Course description and aims

This course is a succession of "Introduction to Analysis III" in the third quarter. We will continue to 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).


The students will learn "divergence theorem" and "Stokes' theorem" on surface integrals. They will also learn differential forms to formalize these theorems in a unified manner, as extensions of the "fundamental theorem of calculus".

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students are expected to:
-- understand the tangent vectors and tangent space of surfaces
-- be able to calculate surface integrals of vector fields
-- understand the meaning of divergence theorem and Stokes' theorem
-- be able to calculate differential forms

Keywords

tangent vector, surface integral, divergence theorem, Stokes theorem,
differential forms, exterior derivative

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.
