Possible Study achievement

  • Verification of study performance: proof of successful participation in the exercise classes (ungraded)
  • Examination number (Study achievement): 81102 ("Higher Mathematics II (prerequisite)")
  • Details of the examination (type, duration, criteria) will be announced at the beginning of the course.


  • Vector Analysis: vectors (in particular: ℝn), subspaces, linear independence, basis, dimension, scalar product, orthogonality, projections, vector product;
  • Matrix calculus: definition, calculation rules, base change, linear mappings, description of linear mappings via matrices, linear systems of equations (description via matrices, structure of solutions, Gaussian algorithm), invertibility, calculation of inverse, normal equations and linear least squares, determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors (diagonalizability, principal axis theorem);
  • Differentiation (multidimensional): scalar and vector fields, curves, contour lines, total and partial differentiability, directional derivation, implicit differentiation, inverse function theorem, differentiation rules (in particular: inverse function and chain rule), Taylor expansion, extremes under constraints (scalar functions of several variables), gradient fields, potentials, divergence and rotation, applications;
  • Integration (multidimensional): normal domains (also called type I or type II domains), multiple integrals over normal domains.
