Mathematical Analysis II
The purpose of the course is to provide the students with the necessary background of differential and integral calculus for functions of several variables, and of differential equations. A further aim is to apply analytical techniques in other scientific disciplines.
Learning outcomes (declined compared with the Dublin descriptors)
Knowledge and understanding. Knowledge of the differential and integral calculus for functions of several variables. The student will be able to state and prove basic theorems of Mathematical Analysis.
Applying knowledge and understanding. The ability to understand the problems proposed during the course, the ability to correctly apply the theoretical knowledge. The student will be able to study functions, to solve integration problems, to solve integration problems, to solve differential equations of first and second order, to discuss the nature series of functions.
Making judgments. Develop the ability to critically evaluate the problems and propose the most appropriate approach
Communication skills. Ability to report and present the results with a ogical-deductive and synthetic exposition.
Ability to learn.
Ability to develop, outline, summarize the contents
Differential and integral calculus for functions of one variable. Sequences of real numbers and Series.

The objective of the exam is to check the level of achievement of the above-mentioned training objectives.
The exam is divided into two parts:
- A written test that aims to evaluate the ability to correctly use the theoretical knowledge acquired during the course to solve mathematical problems. The student who does not show sufficient mastery of the arguments is not admitted to the next test. The expected time is 2 hours.
- an oral test in which the ability to link and compare different aspects of the course will be evaluated.
The final vote takes into account the evaluation of both tests.
