In order to be able, for a student, to follow the course, it is very important that the student has succeeded in the first course subject Funcions de Variable Real (functions of one real variable). If this is not the case, it is essential that, the student understands the notions of convergence of sequences and continuity, differentiability and integrability of functions. It is also crucial that the student has enough mathematical skills in the manipulation of limits, Taylor series representation of functions...

For a student to succeed in this subject is is essential to acquire the following capacities.

** **

**Theoretical skills.**

1. Understand the notion of series convergence and improper integrals.

2. Know about the most important criteria to decide the convergence of series and improper integrals.

3.Fully understand the notion of uniform convergence of a sequence of functions.

4. Understand the results that relate the uniform convergence on one side, and the notions of continuity, derivability and integrability on the other.

5. Understand why it is important to consider power series in the complex context.

6. Understand the results that involve the regularity of functions defined from integrals depending on a parameter.

7. Know about the principal results that relate the regularity of a function and the convergence of a Fourier series.

8. Understand the utility of Fourier series.

9. Understand and be able to reproduce the proofs of the main results of the subject.

** **

**Problem solving skills **

1. Be able to apply the different criteria to decide whether a series or an improper integral converge.

2. Be able to compute the radius of convergence of a power series and know how to sum them in some concrete situations.

3. Be able to represent a function as an infinite sum of terms, as a power series, if possible.

4. Prove results involving uniform convergence of sequences of functions.

5. Be able to compute the Fourier coefficients of functions and be able to compute the sum of some complex series applying the Fourier series results.

6. Be able to relate the different main results of the subject and apply them to solve concrete problems.

- Actively demonstrate high concern for quality when defending or presenting the conclusions of one's work.
- Apply critical spirit and thoroughness to validate or reject both one's own arguments and those of others.
- Assimilate the definition of new mathematical objects, relate them with other contents and deduce their properties.
- Demonstrate a high capacity for abstraction.
- Students must be capable of applying their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional way and they should have building arguments and problem resolution skills within their area of study.
- Students must have and understand knowledge of an area of study built on the basis of general secondary education, and while it relies on some advanced textbooks it also includes some aspects coming from the forefront of its field of study.
- Use computer applications for statistical analysis, numeric and symbolic calculus, graphic display, optimisation or other purposes to experiment with Mathematics and solve problems.

Grading is based on four items:

a) Two mid-term exams, each corresponding to essentially one half of the syllabus, with grades P1,P2.

b) Submission of two set of exercisises through Campus Virtual, that might be revised individually. Their mean is LLEX. No resit possibility exists for this activity.

For those students having gone through these four tests, a mark C1 is generated according to C1=(0,4)*(P1+P2)+(0,2)*LLEX.

Next, a final exam with no previous requirements is held, with grade R, and a second mark C2 is generated according to C2=(0,8)*R+(0,2)*LLEX.

The final mark is max(C1,C2). Students with no C1,C2 grades will be considered as not assessable.

**Unique evaluation**

*Those students having chosen «unique evaluation» will be required, the day the second partial test takes place, to:*

* - Handle the two set of problems announced during the semester specifically for these students. The grade LLEX will be decided upon a personal interview.*

* - Take a final exam, with grade F, consisting in theoretical questions combined with exercises to be solved, similar to those dealt with in «pràctiques d’aula» during the semester.*

* The grade will be C1=(0,2)*LLEX+(0,8)*F.*

*In case C1<5, students may take a recovery exam, with grade R, to be held at a posterior date decided by the degree coordinator. The final grade will be C2=(0,2)*LLEX+(0,8)*R*
