These are the Lectures from my section of Math 231 from the Spring 2017 Semester. While my notes are based on several calculus texts (Stewart, Thomas, Salas and Hille and Etgen etc.) these Lectures follow my notes primarily. I am doing my best to make the notes self-contained so there is no need to purchase additional materials. That said, it's probably wise to get an old edition of Salas and Hille or something for the sake of having many additional homework examples to ponder.
My understanding of multivariate calculus stems in part from my background in physics. I have much higher expectations for what multivariate calculus should encompass. On the other hand, I may spend a bit less time on certain issues of analysis than other math professors. I take up those issues in greater generality in the advanced calculus class (audience permitting).
Topics: vectors, calculus and geometry of paths, Frenet frames, limits of functions of several variables, partial derivatives, chain rules, integration over areas or volumes, optimization, Lagrange multipliers, line integrals, surface integrals, theorems of vector calculus including Green, Stokes and Divergence. Time permitting, the theory of scalar and vector potentials. We also hope to see how to present various constructions in noncartesian coordinate frames.
