Course objectives
The main objective of this course is to provide an introduction to the differential calculus of several variables. The curriculum aims at applications.
  • 1. Functions of several variables
    - metric spaces, Euclidean metric on R^n, natural topology on R^n
    - graph of function, contour diagram
    - limit and continuity
    2. The first derivative
    - partial derivatives, directional derivatives
    - mean value theorem
    - total differential
    - derivatives of composite functions
    3. Imlicit function
    - functions defined implicitly by equations
    - derivatives of implicit functions
    4. Higher derivatives
    - higher partial derivatives
    - theorem on equality of mixed partials
    - Taylor formula
    - maxima and minima of function, constrained maxima and minima
    - method of Lagrange multipliers
