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 oneyear 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 online supplement Web site for text supplement.
