**Semester:** Summer**ECTS:**8**Study level:** BSc**Course code:** 19122**Available in 2022/23:** Yes

**Course description:**

**Objective of the course:**

- Introduce students to matrix calculus, solving systems of linear equations, analysis of the function of two variables, double integrals and first and second order differential equations.

**Learning outcomes:**

After the completion of the course the students will be able to:

- Perform basic algebraic operations with matrices and determine the inverse of a regular matrix.
- Solve a system of linear equations by the Gauss-Jordan method.
- Examine the convergence of an order of numbers or an order of functions and apply the Taylor order in calculating the values of an elementary function without the use of a

calculator. - Determine the natural domain and partial derivatives of the function of two variables.
- Calculate the gradient and differential of the function of two variables at a given point.
- Look for local extremes of the function of two variables.
- Define the area of integration of the double integral.
- Calculate a simpler double integral in rectangular or polar coordinates.
