Unit 2. Differentiability of real-valued functions of several real variables. Partial derivatives. Directional derivatives. Differential of real-valued functions of several real variables. Applications to economics.

Unit 3. Vector-valued functions of several real variables. Limits, continuity and differentiability of vector-valued functions. The Chain Rule. Homogeneous functions. Applications to economics.

Unit 4. Optimization of real-valued functions of several real variables. Quadratic forms. Unconstrained optimization. Optimization with equality constraints. Applications to economics.

Unit 5. Integration of real-valued functions of several real variables. Double integral construction. Double integrals over rectangular domains. Double integrals over general bounded regions.

Unit 6. Introduction to differential equations. Basic concepts and notation. Integration methods for some types of first and second order ordinary differential equations. Applications to economics.

PRACTICAL CONTENTS

Written exercises and computer sessions related to the theoretical contents.

 

4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

Lectures (M1, M3, M4, M5): Theoretical contents and related practical examples will be developed in these sessions.

 

Seminars (M6, M7, M8, M10, M12, M13): 15 one-hour long classroom sessions will be devoted for solving problems, with special emphasis on applications to economics. Additionally, 15 one-hour long computer lab sessions will be devoted for solving problems by using the software Mathematica.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

  1. Detail:

* S2. THEORETICAL CONCEPTS: 6.0 points (60%): Final written exam about the theoretical concepts and related exercises. Learning results R1 and R4.

* S3. CLASSROOM EXERCISES: 2 points (20%): Short classroom tests. Learning results R1, R2 and R4.

*S4. COMPUTER LAB PRACTICES: 2 points (20%): Computer exam. Computer guidelines may be used in the exam. Learning results R1, R3 and R4.

  1. Marks from S3 and S4 will be maintained during the current academic year (however, if a student attends a new computer exam (S4) in a new official exam call during the current academic year, the old mark from S4 will be changed by the new computer exam mark obtained). Students who attend the final written exam (S2) and/or the computer exam (S4) will appear as 'SHOWN' in the grade list for the corresponding official exam call.
  2. The final continuous grade will be the sum of the marks obtained from S2, S3, S4.
  3. Calculator is not allowed in tests and exams.
  4. Assessment of S2 and/or S4 could be performed during the ordinary classroom sessions if the number of students of the group allows it.

-------------------------------------------

 A final alternative grade given by the sum of the marks of the final written exam (S2) and the computer exam (S4), weighted 80% and 20%, respectively, will be considered for each student at each official exam call.

 

The final student grade will be the maximum of the final continuous student grade and the final alternative student one at each official exam call.
