Advanced Calculus and Applications II
(MTH 438, Spring 2018)

Prerequisite: MTH 437 for MTH 438 or permission from instructor.

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

Course Description: 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 438 covers chapters 5-8 from the text book, together with some extra materials beyonds the text.

Sakai: We use Sakai through out the semester. I'll post and email announcements, assignments, ... on Sakai. Make sure you register on Sakai!

Grading Policy:
