Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Mathematics is essential part of education on technical universities. It should be considered rather the method in the study of technical courses than a goal. Thus the goal of mathematics is train logical reasoning than mere list of mathematical notions, algorithms and methods. Students should learn how to analyze problems, distinguish between important and unimportant, suggest a method of solution, verify each step of a method, generalize achieved results, analyze correctness of achieved results with respect to given conditions, apply these methods while solving technical problems, understand that mathematical methods and theoretical advancements outreach the field mathematics.

Summary

Systems of n ordinary linear differential equations of the first order for n functions: definition, representation at matrix form, methods of solution of systems of 2 equations for 2 functions, Euler method for homogeneous systems of n equations for n functions. Integral calculus of functions of several independent variables: two-dimensional integrals, three-dimensional integrals, vector analysis, line integral of the first and the second kind, surface integral of the first and second kind. Infinite series: number series, series of functions, power series.
