Objectives
1. Knowledge and understanding. The student will acquire theoretical and practical knowledge of the topology of the Euclidean spaces, the theory of functions of several real variables, optimization, integral calculus in several variables, the theory of curves and surfaces, and vector fields.
2. Applying knowledge and understanding. The student will be introduced to the main applications of analytical methods to geometric and physical problems.
3. Making judgements. The student will learn how to classify single problems of optimization, calculus of volumes and areas, vector fields in the right class and which method to apply.
4. Communications skills. The course deals, in a somewhat simplified way, with subjects of higher mathematics and aims at providing the student with a rigorous scientific language.
5. Learning skills. Thanks to the notions acquired in this course, the student will be able to address most problems arising in applied science and engineering.
Prerequisites
Knowledge of the contents of Matematical analysis 1 and Geometry and algebra is required.
Contents

Or ientation of a surface and its boundary. Surface integrals of the first type. Area of a surface. Rotation surfaces.
7. Vector fields (15 hours). Fields in R^n (n=2,3). Divergence, curl, Laplacian. Gradient, irrotational, solenoidal fields. Potential. Line integrals of the second type (circuitation). Surface integrals of the second type (flux). Gauß  Green, divergence, Stokes theorems. Differential forms.
Teaching Methods
The online course is composed by two parts. The first one consists of a series of registrations of theoretical lessons and solved exercises. The second part is devoted to discussions among the professor and/or the tutor and the students, in an environment called "virtual class".
Videolessons can be visualized in an asyncronous way using the most common multimedial tools (pc, smartphone, tablet) and the most popular borwsers (Explorer, Crome, Mozilla, etc).
It is also possible to download some of the contents to look at them offline. In particular, this is possible for slides, tables, proposed and solved exercises.
Verification of learning
Verification takes place by means of a written test, consisting of several problems requiring both theoretical and operative knowledge. Such text may be integrated (on request of the student or of the teacher) by an oral examination consisting of some questions. Each part of the exam will be evaluated with a mark between 1 and 30, and the result will be considered positive if the mean of the two marks will be between 18 (sufficient) and 30 (excellent). The “lode” will acknowledge specially brilliant performances. Mean features to be evaluated will be: knowledge of the contents of the course, autonomous elaboration skills, presentation. A further examination mode is available to the students who attend constantly the lectures: it consists of an intermediate written test, to be held at approximatively half of the course duration and dealing with the topics learned up to that moment, which al lows the student to answer on the second half of the program inly at the final examination. The oral examination, if any, still deals with the whole program.
