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 objectives correspond to those of Analysis I. Building on this and going into greater depth: students will

  • understand the basic principles of the analysis of several variables and, as a special case, the analysis of one variable - as taught in Analysis I - and can work out the differences,
  • understand the linearization of nonlinear problems as a technique of analysis and can apply methods of linear algebra in analysis,
  • can model mathematical and scientific processes using the theory of differential equations.

Upon completion of the module, students will understand and master calculus as a unified mathematical discipline in its entirety.


None. The competences taught in the following module are recommended: Analysis I.
