Module summaryBecause A-level and other entry courses differ in their syllabuses, this module revises differential and integral calculus before obtaining further results which fall outside the core A-level syllabus (eg on hyperbolic functions).The differential calculus of functions of several variables is developed, also.
Objectives- To continue the study of Differential and Integral Calculus with some revision of A-level work, in order to provide a uniform background knowledge of the subject.
- To extend differential calculus to functions of several variables, and functions defined by power series.
On completion of this module, students should be able to:
(a) calculate the derivatives and integrals of elementary functions;
(b) determine whether functions are injective, surjective, odd or even;
(c) compute Taylor series, compute the radius of convergence of a power series;
(d) calculate partial derivatives of any order, compute Taylor series of multivariate functions.
1. Basic function terminology: domain, codomain, range, injectivity, surjectivity, odd and even functions.
2. Differentiation: Limits (informal), definition of the derivative, methods of differentiation, the Mean Value Theorem.
3. Hyperbolic functions and their inverses: Properties; derivatives.
4. Integration: The Riemann integral (informal), Fundamental Theorem of the Calculus, methods of integration.
5. Taylor's Series: Taylor's Theorem, power series, radius of convergence.
6. Partial differentiation: partial derivative of all orders, multivariate Taylor's series.
