Competencies / intended learning achievements

Building on the knowledge acquired in the first year of their mathematical studies, the students have acquired basic theoretical knowledge in two areas of pure resp. applied mathematics.

They know and understand the basic concepts, constructions, results and methods of proof of measure and integration theory. They are able to comprehend the proofs and independently prove or disprove statements. They are able to correctly handle measure-theoretical constructions as well as the Lebesgue integral in a general measure-theoretical context and with regard to its convergence properties. This knowledge is a prerequisite for all advanced courses in the fields of stochastics and functional analysis.

In addition, the students know and understand the basic concepts, statements and methods of the theory of ordinary differential equations, and they master their analytical treatment. By combining results from analysis and linear algebra, they are able to investigate advanced problems and to work on smaller application problems from science and technology using mathematical methods.

In the exercise classes they have acquired a confident, precise and independent handling of the terms, propositions and methods from the lectures.

Requirements for attendance (formal)

For students of the (Bachelor's) study programmes of the Department of Mathematics, the proof of successful participation in the exercise classes of "Fundamentals of Mathematics I" or "Fundamentals of Mathematics II" (e.g. from the module [MAT-10-1-M-2] Fundamentals of Mathematics) is prerequisite for participation in the module examination.
