Course objectives
In the course which takes up the course Algebra I, students get basic knowledge about linear algebra necessary for the further study of mathematics.
  • 1. Vector spaces, vector subspaces
    2. Linear maps (kernel and range, linear isomorphism, matrix representation)
    3. Structure of linear operators (eigenvalues and eigenvectors, first and second decomposition, Jordan basis, Jordan normal form of a matrix)
    4. Scalar product (Gramm-Schmidt orthogonalization, orthogonal complement, the norm induced by a scalar product)
    5. Bilinear and quadratic forms (canonical forms, Sylvester's law of inertia)
    6. Tensors (operations on tensors, bases in spaces of tensors, symmetric and antisymmetric tensors, outer product)
