Course objectives
Introduction to linear algebra and analytical geometry.
Learning outcomes
At the end of this course, students should be able to: understand basic concepts of linear algebra and probability; apply these concepts to iterated linear processes; solve basic problems in analytical geometry.
  • The course is the first part of the four semester block of Mathematics. In the entire course, the fundamentals of general algebra and number theory, linear algebra, mathematical analysis, numerical methods, combinatorics, as well as probability and statistics are presented. Content of the course Linear models:
  • 1. Warm up (4 weeks) -- scalars, scalar functions, combinatorial examples and identities, finite probability, geometric probability, geometry of the plane, relations and mappings, equivalences and orderings.
  • 2. Vectors and matrices (3 weeks) -- vectors, vector space, linear independence, basis, linear mappings, matrices, matrix calculus and determinants, orthogonality, eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
  • 3. Linear models (3 weeks) -- systems of linear (in)equalities, linear programming problem, linear difference equations, iterated linear processes (population models) and Markov chains.
  • 4. Analytical geometry (2 weeks) -- geometrical applications: line, plane, parametric versus non-parametric descriptions, positioning of planes and lines, projective space extension, angle, length, volume, elementary classification of quadrics.

Teaching methods
Two hours of lectures, two hours of tutorial. Lecture covering the theory with illustrative solved problems. Tutorials devoted to solving numerical problems.
Assessment methods
During the semester, two obligatory mid-term exams are evaluated (each for max 10 points). In the seminar groups there are 5 tests during the semester. The seminars are evaluated in total by max 5 points. Students, who collect during the semester (i.e., from tests and mid-term exams) less than 8 points, are graded as X and they do not proceed to the final examination. The final exam is two hours long and written for max 20 points. For successful examination (the grade at least E) the student needs in total 22 points or more.
