In addition to the contents of the Analysis I module, which are also relevant for the final oral examination, the following contents are covered in the module:

  • Metric spaces: Basic topological concepts, convergence, complete, compact, connected metric spaces, space of continuous functions on a compact set (this subject area can be treated by the lecturer alternatively in Analysis I)
  • Differentiation in R^n: total and partial differentiability, gradient, inverse function and implicit function theorem, Taylor formula, local extrema without and with constraints, if possible transformation formula for integrals
  • Ordinary differential equations: elementary solution methods, linear differential equation systems, homogeneous and inhomogeneous ordinary differential equations, theorem of Picard-Lindelöf

Qualification Goals

The general qualification goals correspond to those of Analysis I. Building on these, the students are to

  • understand the basic principles of calculus of several variables, understand inasmuch calculus of one variable - as taught in Analysis I - is a special case, and work out the differences,
  • understand the linearization of nonlinear problems as a technique of analysis and be able to apply methods of linear algebra in analysis,
  • practice the modelling of mathematical / scientific processes on the basis of the theory of differential equations.

Upon completion of the module, students should understand and master analysis as a uniform mathematical subject in its entirety.


Translation is missing. Here is the German original:

Keine. Benötigt werden die die Kompetenzen, die im Basismodul "Analysis I" vermittelt werden, der formale Abschluss dieses Moduls wird jedoch nicht vorausgesetzt.


The module can be attended at FB12 in study program(s)

  • B.Sc. Mathematics
  • B.Sc. Business Mathematics

When studying B.Sc. Mathematics, this module must be completed in the study area Basic Modules in Mathematics.

The module can also be used in other study programs (export module).
