A continuation of Calc I and II, this course is about functions of several variables. Topics include finding maxima and minima of functions of several variables/surfaces and curves in three-dimensional space/integration over these surfaces and curves. Additional topics: conservative vector fields/Stokes' and the divergence theorems/how these concepts relate to real world applications. Prerequisite: MATH 1320 or the equivalent.
Review of topics from Math 3351 including vector spaces, bases, dimension, matrices and linear transformations, diagonalization; however, the material is covered in greater depth with emphasis on theoretical aspects. The course continues with more advanced topics including Jordan and rational canonical forms of matrices and introduction to bilinear forms. Additional topics such as modules and tensor products may be included. Prerequisite: MATH 3351
This course provides the opportunity to offer a new topic in the subject of mathematics.
Studies basic structure theory of Lie algebras.
