Abstract

We introduce a topic in the intersection of symbolic mathematics and computation, concerning topics in multivariable Optimization and Dynamic Analysis. Our computational approach gives emphasis to mathematical methodology and aims at both symbolic and numerical results as implemented by a powerful digital mathematical tool, CAS software Xcas. This work could be used as guidance to develop course contents in advanced calculus curricula, to conduct individual or collaborative projects for programming related objectives, as Xcas is freely available to users and institutions. Furthermore, it could assist educators to reproduce calculus methodologies by generating automatically, in one entry, abstract calculus formulations.
