Course objectives
The course is concerned with the fundamentals of linear algebra and geometry. The main part of the course is devoted to matrices, systems of linear equations and linear maps.
  • 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
