Syllabus
  • 1. Double integral, methods of calculation (Fubini theorem, transformation of coordinates), physical and geometric applications (mass, centre of mass, moment of inertia of a surface).
  • 2. Triple integral, methods of calculation (Fubini theorem, transformation of coordinates), physical and geometric applications (mass, centre of mass, moment of inertia of a body).
  • 3. Surfaces in threedimensional euclidean space: parametrizations, cartesian equations.
  • 4. Surface integral of the first type, physical characteristics of bodies (mass, center of mass, tensor of inertia).
  • 5. Surface integral of the secnond type, physical applications (flow of a vector field).
  • 6. Calculus of surface integrals.
  • 7. Integral theorems.
  • 8. Physical applications of integrals and integral theorems: Integral and differential form of Maxwell equations.
  • 9. Applications of integral theorems in fluid mechanics.
  • 10. Series of functions: Taylor series, physical applications (estimations).
  • 11. Series of functions: Fourier series, applications (Fourier analysis of a signal).

Teaching methods
Seminar based on the solution of the typical problems.
Assessment methods
Based on 'Studijní a zkušební řád Masarykovy univerzity', chapter 9, section 2 the attendance on schooling is required. The absence can be compensated by additional homework. Correct solution of each additional homework can be achieved in two attempts. Deadline for additional homeworks is 3.7.2015. Students harvest points for lecture activity. Each lecture activity is evaluated with one point for correct and complete solution of any of pre-assigned example. Subject matter is divided into three particular tests, which are written during the semester. For each test the student can obtain a maximum of 10 points. Student write fourth test from whole semester, if achieve less then 15 points. Time limit for each test is 60 minutes. Students of combined form also write three particular tests. Final grade will be determinated from unweighted mean of all tests supplemented by points obtained for activity.
