After preparations about elementary functions, this course with recitation focuses on the theory and applications of partial differentiation and multiple integrals of multivariate function.
The aim of this lecture is to provide fundamental knowledge about multivariate calculus, which will be a basis of
science and engineering.
The first aim is to understand basic facts which are required for every student in science and engineering. Based on calculus for functions of one variable in high-school level, this course deals with basics and applications of partial differentiation and multiple integrals of multivariate functions.
