After finishing the course, the students will be able:
- to use matrices as a tool in theoretical or numerical computations
- to compute the rank of a matrix
- to compute determinants
- to solve linear systems of equations
- to understand and use the notion of vector space.
||The aim of the course is to empower the graduate to analyse and compose basic notions and knowledge of Linear Algebra and advance his creative and productive thinking.
- The algebra of (m x n) matrices and applications.
- Row echelon forms and reduced row echelon form of a matrix.
- Rank of a matrix. Determinants. Invertible matrices.
- Linear systems and applications.
- Vector spaces. Linear maps.
- The space L(E,F) of linear operations.
- Subspaces. Bases. Dimension. Rank of a linear operation.
- Fundamental equation of dimension and its applications. Matrix of a linear map. Matrix of a change of bases. The isomorphism between linear mapsand matrices. Equivalent matrices. Similar matrices. Determinant of an endomorphism. Sum and direct sum of vector subspaces.
