    - Matrix representation of linear maps
    - Scalar product (Gramm-Schmidt orthogonalization, orthogonal complement, the norm induced by a scalar product)
    - Bilinear and quadratic forms (canonical forms, Sylvester's law of inertia)
    - Polynomials
    - Eigenvalues and eigenvectors
    - First and second decomposition, Jordan basis, Jordan normal form of a matrix
    - Tensors (operations on tensors, bases in spaces of tensors, symmetric and antisymmetric tensors, outer product)
