Selected Parts from Mathematics 2

IVP2 FEEC BUT BVPM Acad. year 2018/2019 Winter semester 5 credits

Current academic year

The aim of this course is to introduce the basics of calculation of improper multiple integral and basics of solving of linear differential equations using delta function and weighted function. In the field of improper multiple integral, main attention is paid to calculations of improper multiple integrals on unbounded regions and from unbounded functions. In the field of linear differential equations, the following topics are covered: Eliminative solution method, method of eigenvalues and eigenvectors, method of variation of constants, method of undetermined coefficients, stability of solutions.

Subject specific learning outcomes and competences

Students completing this course should be able to:

  • Calculate improper multiple integral on unbounded regions and from unbounded functions,
  • apply a weighted function and a delta function to solving of linear differential equations,
  • select an optimal solution method for given differential equation,
  • investigate a stability of solutions of systems of differential equations.

Learning objectives

The aim of this course is to introduce the basics of improper multiple integrals, systems of differential equations including of investigations of a stability of solutions of differential equations and applications of selected functions with solving of dynamical systems.

Prerequisite kwnowledge and skills

The student should be able to apply the basic knowledge of analytic geometry and mathematical analysis on the secondary school level: To explain the notions of general, parametric equations of lines and surfaces and elementary functions. From the IDA and IMA courses, the basic knowledge of differential and integral calculus and solution methods of linear differential equations with constant coefficients is demanded. Especially, the student should be able to calculate derivative (including partial derivatives) and integral of elementary functions.
