Objectives This course provides the practical application and training for the students concerning the material, formulae and techniques presented in the lecture course Mathematics II. The students are given well-explained sample exercises and a range of exercises to go through to develop their mathematical skills
Subject The following mathematical topics are covered, these are the same topics as those of the corresponding lecture course:

Integral calculus: Definition of definite and indefinite integration, integrals of standard functions, geometric meaning of integration; properties of integrals, fundamental relation between integration and differentiation, integration rules (substitution, integration by part, partial integration). Complex numbers: definition and calculation rules, algebraic, polar and exponential representation of complex numbers and the corresponding calculation rules.

Linear algebra: vector spaces, matrices, matrix multiplication, inverse of a matrix, systems of linear equations. Functions in several variables: partial differentiation, gradients Hesse matrix, stationary points for functions in more than one variable. Integration in several variables.
Criteria for evaluation written examination, homework, attendance
Language English
Changing subject? No
