Course objectives
Linear algebra belongs to basic mathematical education. Passing the course, the students should understand basic notions concerning vector spaces and linear maps and simultaneously they should have good computational skills with matrices and systems of linear equations.
Learning outcomes
The student will be able to:
- use coordinate to solve problems in vector spaces;
- solve problems in vector spaces with a scalar product;
- calculate the determinant of any square matrix;
- solve any system of linear equations;
- use the matrix.
  • Vector spaces:
  • - vector subspaces, linear span;
  • - intersection and sum of vector subspaces;
  • - linearly dependent and independent vectors;
  • - basis and dimension of a vector space, coordinates of a vector.
  • Matrices and determinants.
  • Systems of linear equations.
  • Euclidean vector spaces.
  • Linear maps of vector spaces.
  • Linear transformations and their matrices.
  • Orthogonal mappings, orthogonal matrices.
