Synopsis:

Students acquire knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of classical calculus so that they are able to apply mathematical way of thinking and reasoning and are able to use basic proof techniques. They get skills to practically handle functions of one variable in solving the problems in informatics. They understand the links between the integrals and sums of sequences. They are able to estimate lower or upper bounds of values of real functions and to handle simple asymptotic expressions.

Requirements:

Knowledge of high-school mathematics.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Introduction, real numbers, basic properties of functions.

2. Sequences and their limits.

3. Extended scales of infinity, small- and big-O notation, theta.

4. Limits.

5. Continuity, introduction to derivatives.

6. Derivatives and properties of derivatives.

7. Classical theorems (Rolle, mean value, etc.), l'Hospital's rule.

8. Taylor polynomials and approximation, error estimation, root finding (bisection, Newton's method), monotony, extremes and optimization.

9. Convexity, function graph, primitive function, substitution.

10. Integration by parts, partial fractions.

11. Definite integral (properties, Newton's formula).

12. Improper integral.

13. Uses of integrals.

14. Space and time complexity of algorithms.

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Domain of a function.

2. Basic properties of functions.

3. Sequences.

4. Limits of functions.

5. Differentiating.

6. Tangents/normals, implicit differentiation, related rates.

7. Limits of functions.
