Course Objectives
The goal of this course is to provide a knowledge of the differential and integral calculus for
functions of several variables and of the theory of ordinary differential equations.
The student will also develop the ability of solving non trivial problems and exercises by applying
the techniques learned. The main concepts will be illustrated, if possible, by developing links with
the applications in physics and other sciences, and providing some background on the main
historical references.
