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.
