Elementary differential and integral calculus
Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is offered to students of any study field.
Course objectives
The goals involve the geometric differential and integral calculus. Lie group and algebras will represent useful tools, including their representation. Selected applications will focus at concepts of Riemannian and symplectic geometries, optimal control, analytical mechanics and some further equations of mathematical physics.
Learning outcomes
The students will master the vector fields and exterior forms and the general Stokes theorem with applications in vector calculus. Furthe, they will actively learn basic elements of Lie theory involving the exponential mapping, adjoint representation, covering phenomena, and differential calculus for functions valued in Lie groups. They will be able to exploit the knowledge in analysis based on Riemannian and symplectic geometries, optimal control, and analytical mechanics.
