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).
The students will learn basic operations of vector fields, such as "divergence" or "rotation". They will also learn "Green's theorem", "divergence theorem" and "Stokes' theorem".

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
-- 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

Outer product, vector fields, line integral, gradient, divergence, rotation, Green's theorem on the plane, tangent vector, surface integral, divergence theorem, Stokes theorem, differential forms, exterior derivative

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
