### Course content

Basis module. Functions of several variables. Partial differentiation, gradient. Critical points and optimization. Taylor’s theorem with remainder. Introduction to partial differential equations: examples and solutions.

Partial differential equations. Different types required different approaches, focus on physical/modeling intuition. Overview of the field. Steady state equations. Examples: Laplace’s and Poisson’s equation. Solution by computer using linear algebra. Iterative numerical solutions converging to a steady state. Time-dependent systems. Examples: Heat equation, advection equation, wave equation. Solution by computer.

Programme module. Set theory. Set operations and terminology including intersection and union, Venn diagrams. Propositional logic. Propositions, connectives, disjunctive normal form. Predicate logic and quantifiers. Selected methods of proof. Inference rules and admissible rules. Basic number theory, modular arithmetic, and selected algorithms. Basic graph theory. Important graph types, including trees, and related algorithms such as breadth-first and depth-first search.

### Learning outcome

Knowledge

The candidate has good knowledge of:

• Functions of several variables, including partial derivatives and their application to classification of stationary points and optimization.
• Taylor’s theorem and approximation by Taylor series.
• Partial differential equations, their properties and applications.
• Basic concepts and methods from propositional and predicate logic and set theory
• Selected forms of mathematical proof
• Basic number theory and modular arithmetic
• Terminology and selected algorithms for graphs.
• Digital tools for analysis of mathematical problems.

Abilities

The candidate can:

• Find and interpret the partial derivatives of a function of several variables
• Approximate functions by Taylor’s theorem and estimate the error with a remainder term.
• Solve simple optimization problems with several variables.
• Verify that a given function solves a partial differential equation
• Solve certain partial differential equations by computer, verify and interpret the results.
• Apply basic concepts, results and methods from logic and set theory, for example discern whether an argument is valid or not, or decide whether propositions are equivalent.
• Construct simple mathematical proofs
• Apply selected algorithms from basic number theory.
• Apply basic concepts are results related to graphs and apply selected algorithms to small examples.
• Apply digital tools to analyse mathematical problems.

General competence

The candidate:

• Has good knowledge of, and can apply a symbolic and formulaic mathematical apparatus that is relevant for communication in engineering sciences
• Has experience of evaluation of their own and other students scientific work, and with giving precise and technically correct oral feedback.
• Has experience with applications of mathematical methods and digital tools to problems with their own and related specializations.
• Can connect mathematical concepts and techniques to models the candidate meets within and outside of their studies.

### Learning methods and activities

Lectures, exercises and group work.

Compulsory assignments

The compulsory assignments consist of two parts:

• Compulsory exercises that are based on both analytical and numerical solution of problems and interpretation of the results. The assignments include tasks to be solved with the help of digital tools.
• Compulsory group work

Special conditions

Obligatory activities from previous semesters can be accepted by the institute.

### Compulsory assignments

• Compulsory assignments (exercises and group work)

### Further on evaluation

The course has two evaluations graded with letters; project work (in groups) and an individual exam. Both evaluations must be passed to pass the course. The project work will be assessed on the basis of a report that is handed in by each group at the end of the semester. Teaching comprises lectures, videos and/or notes that cover the themes of the project. In addition there will be group supervision in connection with the courses exericse classes.

### Specific conditions

Admission to a programme of study is required:
Computer Science - Engineering (BIDATA)
Logistics - Engineering (FTHINGLOG)

### Course materials

Recommended course material will be announced at the start of the semester
