Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

To supply working knowledge of basic concepts of linear algebra including their geometric and computational meaning, in order to enable to use these concepts in solution of basic problems of linear algebra. Student should also learn how to use the basic tools of linear algebra in applications.

Teaching methods

Project work


Linear algebra is one of the basic tools of formulation and solution of engineering problems. The students will get in an elementary way basic concepts and comutational skills of linear algebra, including algorithmic aspects that are important in computer implementation.
