Double and triple integrals and their applications. Line integral and its

Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
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 and verify each step of an algorithm,
generalize achieved results,
analyze correctness of results with respect to given conditions,
apply these methods while solving technical problems.
Course Contents
1. Integral calculus of functions of several independent variables. Two-dimensional integrals on coordinate rectangle, on bounded subset of R2.
2. Transformation two-dimensional integrals, geometrical and physical applications.
3. Three-dimensional integrals on coordinate cube, on bounded subset of R3.
4. Transformation of three-dimensional integrals, geometrical and physical applications.
5. Line integral of the first and of the second kind.
6. Independence line integral on path, Green´s theorem.
7. Applications of line integrals.
8. Series. Infinite number series. Definition, sum of a series, necessary convergence condition, harmonic series, geometric series.
9. Convergency tests, ratio test, Cauchy's root test, comparison test, integral test.
