  • About [MAT-00-52-K-1]: The study achievement [U-Schein] proof of successful participation in the exercise classes (ungraded) must be obtained. It is a prerequisite for the examination for PL1.

Examination achievement PL1

  • Form of examination: written exam (Klausur) (120 Min.)
  • Examination number: 81036 ("Mathematics for Biophysics II")

Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


  • multiple integration,
  • the transformation theorem,
  • surface integrals,
  • the theorem of Stokes and Gauss,
  • power series,
  • ordinary differential equations,
  • systems of linear differential equations,
  • Fourier series,
  • partial differential equations.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

By means of exemplary calculations, the students should gain an understanding of basic mathematical facts and thus be able to solve scientific problems, especially in the field of biophysics, using the mathematical methods learned.
