This course first completes the theory of functions of one variable which was developed in the Mathematical Analysis course, by introducing the student to basic concepts of numerical series, power series, Fourier series, and Laplace transform. The course then introduces basic topics in the mathematical analysis of functions of several variables including differential calculus in several variables, the theory of multiple integration, line, and surface integration.

- Conservative vector field; Green, Gauss, and Stokes theorems.
Expected acquired ablities:
- to classify the asymptotic behaviour (e.g., converge or the lack thereof) of numerical series, sequences of functions, and series of functions using the criteria introduced in class;
- to infer the set and type of convergence of sequences and series of functions;
- to compute the power series approximation of a function and the Fourier series approximation of a periodic function;
- to compute the Laplace transform of simple functions and compare their properties;
- to analyze a function of several variables; find and classify its critical points;
- to compute double, triple, line, and surface integrals;
- to reproduce, discuss, and explain theoretical results presented in class and apply them to solve simple problems.

The student should be able to understand the mathematical tools introduced in the course, to make computations with them and to apply such tools in engineering disciplines.

The topics covered in the Mathematical Analysis I and Linear Algebra and Geometry courses. In particular, notions and properties of limits, numerical sequences, differential and integral calculus for functions of one variable, differential equations, linear algebra, geometry of curves.

The course consists in theoretical lectures and practice classes. Theoretical lectures are devoted to the presentation of the topics, with definitions, properties, introductory examples, as well as a number of selected proofs which are believed to facilitate the learning process. The practice classes are devoted to the acquisition of the abilities through guided solution of problems.

The examination consists of a written test and, possibly, an oral test.
The written test consists of a number of multiple choice questions and one or more problems with open-ended answer. Both parts are aimed at checking the acquired knowledge and abilities. Questions cover both theoretical aspects and the solution of simple problems, including the evaluation of integrals and series. The problem section is more complex and allows for a more precise evaluation of the abilities acquired by the student.
The written test’s duration is two hours and it is closed-book: the use of any notes, books, exercise sheets, or pocket calculators is not allowed. The grade of the written test ranges from 0/30 to 30/30 and is the aggregate of the points assigned to the single answers to the multiple choice questions and the problems with open-ended answer. The maximum number of points that can be assigned to the answer of each question and problem are explicitly specified in the exam text.
The oral test takes place only if required either by the teacher or by the student, in the latter case only if the student’s grade in the written test is larger than or equal to 18/30. The oral test aims at evaluating more in depth the knowledge and abilities acquired by the student and possibly clarifying issues raised by the written test: potential questions in the oral test may include the topics and problems covered in written test, however they are not limited to them and may span the whole course contents. In case the oral test takes place, the final grade ranges from 0/30 to 30L/30 and depends both on the written test’s grade and the student’s performance in the oral test.

Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

The goal of the exam is to test the knowledge of the students on the topics included in the official program of the course and to verify their computational and theoretical skills in solving problems.
Marks range from 0 to 30 and the exam is successful if the mark is at least 18.
The exam consists in a written part and in an optional oral part. The written part consists of 10 exercises with closed answer on the topics presented in the course. Questions cover also theoretical aspects.
The aim of the exam is to certify the Expected Learning Outcomes (see above). Questions cover both computational and theoretical aspects, to evaluate the ability in building a logical sequence of arguments using the tools introduced in the course.
The exam lasts 100 minutes. Marks are given according to the following rules. Each exercise assigns: 3 points if correct, 0 points if blank, -1 point if wrong.
The final mark is the sum of points obtained in each exercise plus 2 extra points. A cum Laude mark is assigned only to students who give all correct answers and ask for an oral exam to confirm the 30/30 mark and possibly get the cum Laude mark.
During the exam it is forbidden to use notes, books, exercise sheets and pocket calculators. The test results will be posted on the teaching portal.
Students can request an optional oral part that can alter both in the positive and in the negative the mark obtained in the written part. The optional oral part can only be requested in the same exam session of the written part. Students can request the optional oral part only if the mark they obtained in the written part is at least 18/30.

In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
