Office Hour: MW 2:00-3:00pm

Prerequisite: MTH 243 for MTH 437, MTH 437 for MTH 438.

Textbooks: Marsden / Tromba, Vector Calculus , 5th edition, plus supplemental handouts.

MTH 437 and MTH 438 are intended for a one-year course in the calculus of functions of several variables, vector analysis, and Fourier series. Much of the basic theory as well as many concrete examples will be presented. These two courses have been revised to make them more useful to stdents of applied mathematics, physical science, and engineering. Intuitive understanding and computational skills are important at this level. Besides covering most chapters from text books, extra materials about sequences, series, uniform convergence, Fourier series, Laplace transforms will be provided.

MTH 437 covers the first four chapters from the text book, together with some extra materials beyonds the text.

The text has an on-line supplement Web site for text supplement.
