Course objectives
Linear algebra belongs to the fundamentals of mathematical education. Passing the course, the students should - master the basic notions concerning vector spaces and linear maps and, furthermore, they should - gain good computational skills with matrices and systems of linear equations.
  • Scalars, vectors and matrices: Properties of real and complex numbers, vector spaces and their examples, $R^n$ and $C^n$, multiplication of matrices, systems of linear eguations, Gauss elimination, computation of inverse matrices.
  • Vector spaces - basic notions: Linear combinations, linear independence, basis, dimension, vector subspaces, intersections and sums of subspaces, coordinates.
  • Linear mappings: Definition, kernel and image, linear isomorphism, matrix of linear mapping in given bases, transformation of coordinates.
  • Systems of linear equations: Properties of sets of solutions, rank a matrix, existence of solutions.
  • Determinants: Permutations, definition and basic properties of determinants, computation of inverse matrices, application to systems of linear equations.
  • Affine subspaces in $R^n$: Definition, parametric and implicit description, affine mapping.
  • Scalar product in $R^n$: Definition and basic properties of scalar product

Teaching methods
Lectures: theoretical explanation with practical examples. Exercises: solving problems for understanding of basic concepts and theorems, contains also more complex problems, homeworks. Students will be asked to have an active participation at seminars and to obtain 40 % of possible points from two written tests.
Assessment methods
Form: lectures and exercises. Exam: written. Requirements: to manage the theory from the lecture, to be able to solve the problems similar to those from exercises
