Mathematics IB (Advanced) - MATH133

The notion of linearity is developed in this unit through the introduction of the abstract notion of vector spaces. The new ideas are then used to further study systems of linear equations. The study of differential and integral calculus is taken further by the introduction of functions of two real variables and the study of first‐order and second‐order ordinary differential equations. The notion of a limit is enhanced by the study of sequences and series. Ideas from power series are then used to revisit differential equations.

The topics in this unit are studied with a degree of rigour and sophistication appropriate to better-prepared students with a strong interest in the theoretical underpinnings of the subject. An alternative treatment of the same material from a less sophisticated point of view can be obtained by taking MATH136.
