Course description

Expected learning outcomes
The course aims to provide basic knowledge concerning the theory of functions of several real variables (continuity, differentiability, integrability), unconstrained and constrained optimization problems, ordinary differential equations. The student will be able to use the studied methods for modeling and solving economic and environmental problems.

Knowledge and understanding
The student will demonstrate that he has acquired the tools of mathematical analysis and has to be able to apply them to model and solve real problems.
Applying Knowledge and understanding
The student should be able to apply the acquired mathematical techniques to real problems, especially of environmental nature and, in particular, he has to be be able to solve optimization problems.

Making judgments
The student will demonstrate that he is able to translate into mathematical terms a problem that describes a real phenomenon.
Communication
The student will demonstrate his ability to expose, with a certain rigor, the knowledge acquired, answering in a exhaustive way to the questions of the oral examination.
Lifelong learning skills
The student should be able to show a good learning ability of the acquired methodologies and he should know how to use mathematical tools to solve application problems.
