At the end of the course, the student will be able to use the major concepts of linear algebra.
This course gives an introduction to the field of linear algebra. Concepts and techniques from linear algebra are of fundamental importance in many scientific disciplines and provide the "language" for understanding the behavior of linear mappings and linear spaces. Topics covered are linear systems and Gauss method, vector spaces, linear maps and matrices, determinants, eigenvectors and eigenvalues.
The course will use lectures, tutorials and practicals.
The course will be evaluated through homework, midterm and final exams.
