Background and Goals: This course does a rigorous development of multivariable calculus and elementary function theory with some view towards generalizations. Concepts and proofs are stressed. This is a relatively difficult course, but the stated prerequisites provide adequate preparation. Content: Topics include (1) partial derivatives and differentiability, (2) gradients, directional derivatives, and the chain rule, (3) implicit function theorem, (4) surfaces, tangent plane, (5) max-min theory, (6) multiple integration, change of variable, etc. (7) Green's and Stokes' theorems, differential forms, exterior derivatives. Alternatives: none Subsequent Courses: Math 452 is prerequisite to Math 572 and is good general background for any of the more advanced courses in analysis (Math 596, 597) or differential geometry or topology (Math 537, 635)
