"On completion of the course the student shall be able to:
- Define multivariable functions algebraically, graphically and visually.
- Evaluate and interpret derivatives of functions of two or more variables.
- Classify critical points of two variable functions and interpret them geometrically.
- Use Lagrange multipliers to solve optimization problems
"This course covers the topic of functions of several variables and extend the basic ideas of single variable calculus (domain, limits, continuity, differentiation) to such functions. Multivariable functions are essential to describe physical or real life phenomena in domains like Epidemiology, Population Biology and Ecology, Thermodynamics, Electromagnetism and Economics.
The course will be taught in the first quartile of Semester 2 and will be 2 ECs.
There will be lectures on weekly basis (1 lecture per week) with a final project as a deliverable. "
