Multivariate Calculus Notes

### Topics in our Multivariate Calculus Notes PDF

In these “Multivariate Calculus Notes PDF”, you will study the extension of the studies of single variable differential and integral calculus to functions of two or more independent variables. Also, the emphasis will be on the use of Computer Algebra Systems by which these concepts may be analyzed and visualized to have a better understanding. This course will facilitate to become aware of applications of multivariable calculus tools in physics, economics, optimization, and understanding the architecture of curves and surfaces in plane and space etc.

The topics we will cover will be taken from the following list:

Calculus of Functions of Several Variables: Functions of several variables, Level curves and surfaces, Limits and continuity, Partial differentiation, Higher order partial derivative, Tangent planes, Total differential and differentiability, Chain rule, Directional derivatives, The gradient, Maximal and normal property of the gradient, Tangent planes and normal lines.

Extrema of Functions of Two Variables and Properties of Vector Field: Extrema of functions of two variables, Method of Lagrange multipliers, Constrained optimization problems; Definition of vector field, Divergence and curl.

Double and Triple Integrals: Double integration over rectangular and nonrectangular regions, Double integrals in polar co-ordinates, Triple integral over a parallelopiped and solid regions, Volume by triple integrals, Triple integration in cylindrical and spherical coordinates, Change of variables in double and triple integrals.

Green’s, Stokes’ and Gauss Divergence Theorem: Line integrals, Applications of line integrals: Mass and Work, Fundamental theorem for line integrals, Conservative vector fields, Green’s theorem, Area as a line integral, Surface integrals, Stokes’ theorem, Gauss divergence theorem.
