Learning Outcomes

Learning outcomes The main learning outcomes are the: differentiability analysis of real- and vector-valued functions of several variables familiarity with the Euclidean space from an analytic (topological) viewpoint knowledge of the problems that arise in Analysis in several dimensions preparation for the treatment of functions of several variables in more specialized courses, e.g., Partial Differential Equations, Differential Geometry, Classical Mechanics, Application of Mathematics in the Sciences development of combination skills concerning knowledge from diverse areas of Mathematics (Linear Algebra, Analytical Geometry, Analysis). Search for, analysis and synthesis of data and information, with the use of the necessary technology Adapting to new situations Working independently Criticism and self-criticism Production of free, creative and inductive thinking

Syllabus
