|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject develops the manipulation of partial derivatives and vector differential operators. Students should develop the ability to obtain extrema of functions of several variables, calculate line, surface and volume integrals, and to work in curvilinear coordinates. This subject demonstrates the fundamental concepts of vector calculus and the relations between line, surface and volume integrals.
Functions of several variables topics include limits, continuity, differentiability, matrix version of chain rule, Jacobian, Taylor polynomials, and Lagrange multipliers. Vector calculus topics include vector fields, flow lines, curvature, torsion, gradient, divergence, curl and Laplacian. Integrals over paths and surfaces topics include line, surface and volume integrals; change of variables; applications including averages, moments of inertia, centre of mass, Green's theorem, Divergence theorem and Stokes' theorem; and curvilinear coordinates.
|Assessment:||Up to 25 pages of written assignments due during the semester (10%); a 45-minute written test held mid-semester (15%); a 3-hour written examination in the examination period (75%).|
|Breadth Options:||This subject is a level 2 or level 3 subject and is not available to new generation degree students as a breadth option in 2008. |
This subject or an equivalent will be available as breadth in the future.
Breadth subjects are currently being developed and these existing subject details can be used as guide to the type of options that might be available.
2009 subjects to be offered as breadth will be finalised before re-enrolment for 2009 starts in early October.
