Course objectives
The objective of this course is to give a general survey of mathematical methods and techniques applicable in chemistry that forms basis for the subsequent study. In particular, methods and techniques of mathematical analysis and linear algebra are dealt. An intuitive understanding of concepts and application of techniques to particular problems are emphasized rather than precise mathematical theory.
Learning outcomes
Passing the course, a student will be able: - to understand simple mathematical models of dynamic processes, and to active use the simpliest of them (derivative and integrals of single argument).
  • 1. Elementary notion of sets, number sets. 2. Functions and their basic properties 3. Properties of elementary functions 4. Complex numbers 5. Continuous functions, limits 6. Introduction to differential calculus 7. Introduction to integral calculus 8. Selected applications of definite integrals 9. Differential equations and selected elementary methods of solution 10. Selected simple mathematical models in chemistry 11. Vectors, matrices, determinants, operations with them 12. Systems of linear equations
