MATH S-21A Multivariable Calculus
To see how calculus applies in situations described by more than one variable, we study vectors, lines, planes, and parameterization of curves and surfaces; partial derivatives, directional derivatives, and gradients; optimization and critical point analysis, including the method of Lagrange multipliers; integration over curves, surfaces, and solid regions using Cartesian, polar, cylindrical, and spherical coordinates; vector fields, and line and surface integrals for work and flux; and the divergence and curl of vector fields together with applications.
