The course is focused at elements of calculus in two and more variables.

Calculus in two variables: notion of a limit and continuity, partial derivative, differential and its applications. Derivative of a composed function, derivative of an implicit function. Higher order derivatives, local extremes. Constrained extremes, least squares method. Double and triple integrals, geometrical interpretation, Fubini theorem. Integration by substitution in double and triple integral.


Credit condition - 70% presence, successful written test on 3. and 6. exercise. It is necessary to gain at least one half of maximum number of points.

Theme of 1. test: Domain of definition of two variable function, tangent plane, local extrema.

Theme of 2. test: Double and triple integrals.
