Course content
A. Definitions of mapping and function 1. Introduction - used symbols, notations. Basic terms of sententional calculus. Number sets. 2. Mapping, basic terms (domain of definition, image of mapping, types of mapping). Real function, basic properties of functions (monotony, bounded functions, even, odd). 3. Inverse function. Basic elementary functions (including cyclometric). 4. Other functions (absolute value, signum, entire function, Dirichlet's function). Real sequences. B. Differential calculus 5. Limit of sequence (finite, infinite), theorems about limit, calculation of limit, number e. 6. Limit function, one-sided limits, limits at infinite points. Continuity, properties of continuous functions. 7. Derivative, geometric applications, tangent line to a function. Calculation of derivative, derivative of a composite function, derivative of an inverse function. 8. L'Hospital's rule. Monotony, local and global extreme of a function. 9. Convexity, concavity, point of inflexion. Applications of derivatives to studying of graph of a function. 10. Differential of a function. Taylor's formula. C. Integral calculus 11. Primitive function and indefinite integral. Basic rules, method per partes, substitution method. 12. Integration by partial fractions. 13. Riemann definite integral, Newton-Leibniz's theorem. Infinite integral. 14. Number series, criterions of convergence, absolute convergence.
