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 knowledge and skills

The student should be able to apply the basic knowledge of analytic geometry and mathamatical analysis on the secondary school level: to explain the notions of general, parametric equations of lines and surfaces and elementary functions.
From the BMA1 and BMA2 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.

Progress assessment

The student's work during the semestr (written tests and homework) is assessed by maximum 30 points.
Written examination is evaluated by maximum 70 points. It consist of seven tasks (one from improper multiple integral (10 points), three from application of a weighted function and a delta function (3 X 10 points) and three from analytical solution method of differential equations (3 x 10 points)).

Teaching methods and criteria

Teaching methods include lectures and demonstration practises . Course is taking advantage of exercise bank and Maple exercises on server UMAT. Students have to write a single project/assignment during the course.

Controlled instruction

The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.
