Unformatted text preview: • loops: for, while • probability – basic definitions – rules for mutually exclusive events and independent events – probability distribution functions – expected values • Limits – definition – calculation using Taylor series, using L’Hospital • Derivatives – definition – product rule, chain rule, quotient rule • Integrals – definition as area under a function – fundamental theorems of calculus – solving using substitution, integration by parts • Taylor series f ( x ) = f ( c ) + f ( c )( x-c ) + f 00 ( c ) 2! ( x-c ) 2 + ··· • basics of complex numbers – Euler formula e ix = cos( x ) + i sin( x ) – going from Cartesian to polar coordinates • you will need to write a short Matlab program on the exam!...
