Compentences and Skills that will be Acquired and Learning Results:
The student will be able to formulate, solve and understand mathematical problems arising in engineering. To do so it is necessary, in this second course of Calculus, to be familiar with the n-dimensional euclidean space, in particular in dimension 3, and with its more usual subsets. He/she must be able to manage (scalar and vector) functions of several variables, their continuity, differentiability and integrability properties. The student must be able to solve optimization problems with and without restrictions and will apply the main integration theorems to compute areas and volumes, inertia moments and heat flow. He/she must know the concepts of ordinary differential equation and differential equations problem. The student will be able to solve the main first and second order differential equations.
Description of Contents: Course Description
The Euclidean space. Functions of several variables. Continuity and differentiability. Polar, spherical and cylindrical coordinates. The chain rule. Directional derivatives. Gradient, divergence and curl. Free and conditional optimization. Multidimensional Iterated integration. Changes of variables. Integration along trajectories. Integration on surfaces. Computation of areas, volumes, centers of mass , moments of inertia and. other applications of the integral. Theorems of Green, Stokes and Gauss. Introduction to differential equations. Laplace transform.
Learning Activities and Methodology:
The academic methodology includes:
- Master classes, where the knowledge that the students must acquire will be presented. To make easier the development of the class, the students will have written notes and also will have the basic texts of reference that will facilitate their subsequent work.
- Resolution of exercises by the student that will serve as self-evaluation and to acquire the necessary skills.
- Problem classes, in which problems proposed to the students are discussed and developed.
- Partial controls.
- Final control.
The evaluation will be based in the following criteria:
- Three or four partial evaluation controls (40%).
- Final examination (60%).

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
