calculus and linear algebra



Differential Calculus-1: Review of elementary differential calculus, Polar curves – the angle between the radius vector and tangent, the angle between two curves, pedal equation. Curvature and radius of curvature- Cartesian and polar forms; Centre and circle of curvature (All without proof-formulae only) —applications to evolutes and involutes.


Differential Calculus-2: Taylor’s and Maclaurin’s series expansions for one variable (statements only), indeterminate forms – L’Hospital’s rule. Partial differentiation; Total derivatives-differentiation of composite functions. Maxima and minima for a function of two variables; Method of Lagrange multipliers with one subsidiary condition. Applications of maxima and minima with illustrative examples. Jacobians-simple problems.

Evaluation of double integrals- change of order of integration and changing into polar co- ordinates. Applications to find area volume and centre of gravity Beta and Gamma functions: Definitions, Relation between beta and gamma functions and simple problems.


Ordinary differential equations (ODE’s) of first order: Exact and reducible to exact differential equations. Bernoulli’s equation. Applications of ODE’s-orthogonal trajectories, Newton’s law of cooling and L-R Circuits. Nonlinear differential equations: Introduction to general and singular solutions; Solvable for p only; Clairaut’s and reducible to Clairaut’s equations only.


Linear Algebra: Rank of a matrix-echelon form. Solution of a system of linear equations — consistency. Gauss-elimination method, Gauss —Jordan method and Approximate solution by Gauss-Seidel method. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors- Rayleigh’s power method. Diagonalization of a square matrix of order two.
