Learning Outcomes

Learning outcomes

After finishing the course, the students will be able:

  • to compute eigenvalues and eigenvectors
  • to diagonalize matrices
  • to compute othocanonical bases, orthogonal complements and orthogonal projections to subspaces
  • to diagonalise symmetric matrices using orthogonal matrices
  • to compute the invariants of quadratic forms.
General Competences

The aim of the course is to empower the graduate to analyse and compose notions and knowledge of Linear Algebra and advance creative and productive thinking.
