Math 240: Calculus III
February 15, 2010
This course is an introduction to the calculus of functions of several variables. It begins with the study of the basic objects of multidimensional geometry: vectors and vector operations, various coordinate systems, and the elementary differential geometry of vector functions and space curves. After that we will extend the tools of differential and integral calculus to multidimensional problems. The last part is dedicated to line and surface integrals. The course concludes with various extensions of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to multidimensional integrals, and applications to vector fields.
