Content

The course gives an introduction to linear equations, matrices, determinants, vector spaces, eigenvalues, diagonalization problems, and elementary solution methods through programming.

Learning outcome

By the end of this course a successful student should be able to:

  • Be familiar with some of the techniques and ideas in linear algebra.
  • Be able to deal with systems of linear equations. Understand the connection both between the set of solutions and vector spaces, and between linear systems and linear transformations.
  • Understand the use of orthogonality and manage to construct orthogonal basis for certain vector spaces.
  • Be able to deal with the diagonalizationproblem.
  • Be able to solve elementary linear problems using a programming language such as Python.

Course assessment

There must be an early dialogue between the course coordinator, the student representative and the students. The purpose is feedback from the students for changes and adjustments in the course for the current semester.In addition, a digital course evaluation must be carried out at least every three years. Its purpose is to gather the students experiences with the course.
