Advanced Calculus University of Tsukuba

Course Overview

Following“Introduction to Single-Variable Calculus I & II," this course introduces the basic tools of calculus and develops their technical competence, namely, differential equations, infinite series, vector calculus, curvilinear coordinate systems, and partial derivatives, etc. This is achieved by visualization, numerical and graphical experimentations and, thus, students are required to be acquainted with Mathematica (or similar ones) during the course as working exercises and homework problems. This course as well as “Introduction to Single-Variable Calculus I & II” provides a core and practical knowledge required for many courses in both natural and social sciences.

Learning Achievement

1. The students are able to solve the 1st- and 2nd-order linear differential equations
2. The students are able to describe the geometry with vectors and vector functions.
3. The students are able to carry out partial derivatives of multi-variable functions.
4. The students are able to evaluate areas and volumes by multiple integrals.
5. The students are able to carry out derivatives and integrals of vector functions.

Competence

Related to 1. Mathematical logic and calculation skills.
