M324 A Advanced Multivariable Calculus

Spring 2019

Course Summary

This course is a continuation of Math 126. The focus is mostly on integration in multiple variables. We discuss double and triple integrals; gradients and directional derivatives; line and surface integrals; and the theorems of Green, Stokes, and Gauss. In the second half of the course vector fields will play a key role -- the amazing rendering to the left (credit: writer of the Houdini Gubbins blog) is an example of the flow lines of such a vector field.

Other Materials

Prepared by Dr. Loveless. For the outlines below (Chapter 15), the section numbering is based on the 7th Edition of the book. 15.1 and 15.2 in the 7th edition are the same as 15.1 in the 8th edition. For the rest of the sections, the section in the 7th edition is one ahead of the 8th edition (eg. 15.3 in the 7th edition is 15.2 in the 8th).
