Content

The concepts of differentiation and integration for the multi variable functions constitute the core of this unit, along with the notion of partial differentiation. Several techniques are then developed for solving constrained and unconstrained multivariate optimization problems and solving second order ordinary differential equations. Applications of these mathematical techniques to the modelling of motion in space, optimization in business and economics, various forces in physics, periodic processes in mechanics, electric circuits and biology are presented.

Assessment
