Mathematical Physics II
Youm, I. (Issakha) (2010)
This Mathematical Physics II module builds on the Mathematical Physics I module. It addresses differential and integral calculus tools for functions (scalar and vector) of multiple variables. It reviews the areas of vectors, spatial geo- metry, vector functions, curves, surfaces, partial derivatives, multiple integrals and diverse applications such as surface and volume calculations. It also covers the notions of curvilinear integrals and surface integrals as well as the theorems of Gauss, Green and Stokes. It concludes with applications in wave theory and magneto-electric wave propagation. This last section, which explains some applications in the field of physics, gives the learner an idea of how mathematics is applied in practice.
