AbstractDifferential and integral calculus for functions of one and several variables; vector analysis; ordinary differential equations of first and of higher order, systems of ordinary differential equations; power series. The mathematical methods are applied in a large number of examples from mechanics, physics and other areas which are basic to engineering.
ObjectiveIntroduction to the mathematical foundations of engineering sciences, as far as concerning differential and integral calculus.
Lecture notesU. Stammbach: Analysis I/II
Prerequisites / NoticeThe exercises and online quizzes are an integral part of this course.

AbstractTopics in Riemannian geometry in the large: the structure of complete, non-compact Riemannian manifolds of non-negative sectional curvature, including Perelman's (1994) proof of the Cheeger-Gromoll soul conjecture; the Besson-Courtois-Gallot barycenter method (1996) and the proofs of the minimal entropy theorem and the Mostow rigidity theorem for rank one locally symmetric spaces.
