Multivariable Calculus for Engineers

Subject Course No. Credit Value
Math MATH 2513 Four (4) credit hours

Almost all math-related problems in engineering and science are more complicated than the ones we have seen in single variable calculus. The objects in nature usually are affected by many other objects. In other words, we need to represent them by multivariable functions. In this course, we deal with such problems, with more sophisticated tools to compare to the usual derivative and integral we practised in first-year calculus.

Instructor: Bahram Rangipour (please contact the instructor if you need an up-to-date syllabus)
Prerequisite: Math 1013 and Math 1503

Why take this course?

  • Learn how to work with multivariable mathematical objects, including functions, sequences, and series.
  • Extend the calculus techniques to several-variable situations.
  • Understand and solve problems in differentiation, optimization, and integration of multi-dimension quantities.
  • Use software to observe the behaviour of several-variable functions around their critical points.
