 TNA002 Linear Algebra, 6 ECTS credits. /Linjär algebra/ Prel. scheduled hours: 48 Rec. self-study hours: 112 Area of Education: Science Subject area: Mathematics Advancement level (G1, G2, A): G1 Aim: To give a unified framework for geometrical and algebraic techniques, with applications in analysis, mechanics, computer graphics, numerical analysis, mathematical statistics, control theory, linear optimization and other subjects. It is also included to develop the ability of using the mathematical language both written and oral. It is necessary for the participant to be able to Solve systems of linear equations Work with inner and cross product Calculate with matrices and determinants Calculate with vectors and coordinates in a vector space Determine the matrix for a linear transformation and the kernel and the range for such matrices Determine ON-basis in an inner product space Do orthogonal projection on subspaces and to use least squares approximations Solve problems by changing basis Determine and to use eigenvalues and eigenvectors in different problems Use the spectral theorem in different problems Determine the canonical basis of quadratic forms and to use these to solve geometrical problems Solve systems of differential equations Prerequisites: (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered) Lycée mathematics and physics (natural sciences or technical programmes). Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.
