Prel. scheduled
hours: 48
Rec. selfstudy hours: 112


Area of Education: Science
Subject area: Mathematics


Advancement level
(G1, G2, A): G2


Aim:
This course is a continuation of the course in multi variable calculus. Consequently, the aims are similar: to give students an understanding of mathematical concepts and familiarity with mathematical methods of analysis. Here, these aims relate to the treatment of functions of several variables and vector fields which arise in all branches of physics and engineering. Students will be expected to be able to do the following after completing this course:
 find potentials and vector potentials for a vector field
 find flow lines of a vector field
 calculate path and surface integrals
 use Gauss' and Stokes' theorems for calculations of flux and path integrals
 use spherical and cylindrical coordinates in calculations


Prerequisites: (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered)
Analys IIII and Linear algebra
Note: Admission requirements for nonprogramme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.


Supplementary courses:
Electromagnetic Field Theory and Electromagnetism, Acoustics.


Organisation:
The course is given in the form of lectures, tutorials, tests and a
final examination.


Course contents:
Scalar and vector fields. The gradient, divergence and curl. Line, surface
and flux integrals. The Divergence theorem and Stokes's theorem.
Curvilinear coordinates. Partial differential equations.


Course literature:
Vektoranalys, Anders Ramgard, THS AB.

Written examination 
6 ECTS
