## Content and learning outcomes

### Course contents

Concept within vector calculus and their physical applications: the nabla operator, integral theorems and potential theory. Tensors with applications from for example electrodynamics and continuum mechanics. Special vector fields and their importance within physical modelling. Modelling by means of vector calculus. The concept of symmetry with relation to basic group theory and its importance within physics.

### Intended learning outcomes

On completion of the course, a student should be able to

• Use vector calculus to describe and analyse physical systems
• Be able to model and formulate basic physical problems within for example electromagnetism and fluid mechanics by means of vector calculus
• Describe different physical situations where singular vector fields arise and use these to describe physical systems
• Apply tensor analysis on basic physical problems within for example solid mechanics
• Use symmetries and basic group theory to draw conclusions about physical systems

## Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

### Examination

• TEN1 - Written Examination, 4.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

### Other requirements for final grade

Approved examination.

### Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination

Yes

### Ethical approach

• All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
• In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
• In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
