Short description:

Interdisciplinary studies, nuclear power engineering and nuclear chemistry: Differential and integral calculus

Full description:

The topics of the program of the course, more or less corresponding to each week, are:

1. Mathematical logic and set theory. Mathematical induction.

2. Functions, their properties and graphs.

3. Sequences, their (convergence) and limits.

4. Differentializability of functions, derivatives and their properties, and some computation methods.

5. Study of the graph of a function. Taylor series expansion.

6. The concept of primitive function, integration by parts and a list of basic examples. The definite integrals and their geometric interpretation.

7. Integration of rational and trigonometric functions.

8. Integration by substitution (especially Euler). The concept of Riemman's integral.

9. Improper integrals. The length of curves and the area of ​ figures.

10. Numerical and functional series, their (convergence) and limits.

11. Functions of several variables, their boundaries, partial and directional derivatives and gradient.

12. Free and constrained extrema of functions of several variables. Implicit unctions.

13. First order differential equations.

14. Higher order linear differential equations. Systems of ordinary differential equations. Multiple integrals. The integral of the Gauss function.

15. Several (optional) advanced topics. Recollection of the entire program. Simulations of the oral exam.

The structure of the entire course (lectured since 2018/19 by Dr. Giovanni Moreno) mimics the structure of previous years, lectured by Professor Kaminski.
