Specific Objectives of course:
This is third course of Calculus and builds up on the concepts learned in first two courses. The students would be introduced to the vector calculus, the calculus of multivariable functions and double and triple integrals along with their applications.
Vectors and analytic geometry in space:
Coordinate system. Rectangular, cylindrical and spherical coordinates. The dot product, the cross product. Equations of lines and planes. Quadric surfaces.
Vector-valued functions and space curves. Derivatives and integrals of vector valued functions. Arc length. Curvature, normal and binormal vectors.
Multivariable functions and partial derivatives:
Functions of several variables. Limits and Continuity. Partial derivatives, Composition and chain rule. Directional derivatives and the gradient vector. Implicit function theorem for several variables. Maximum and minimum values. Optimization problems. Lagrange Multipliers.
Double integrals over rectangular domains and iterated integrals. Non-rectangular domains. Double integrals in polar coordinates. Triple integrals in rectangular, cylindrical and spherical coordinates. Applications of double and triple integrals. Change of variables in multiple integrals.
Vector fields. Line integrals. Green’s theorem. Curl
and divergence. Surface integrals over scalar and vector fields. Divergence theorem. Stokes’ theorem.
