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 ONbasis 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
