OVERVIEW

Linear algebra and analytic geometry

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Basic notions of linear algebra and analytic geometry. Complex numbers. Linear systems, gaussian elimination, matrices and determinants. Vector spaces. Eigenvalues and diagonalization. Quadratic forms. Analytic geometry in 2-space and 3-space.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

To provide basic knowledge of linear algebra and analytic geometry concepts, in order to give access to future advanced course which require this kind of mathematical knowledge. 

TEACHING METHODS

Lectures will be devoted to developing the theoretic part of the course, as well as to solving problems aimed to a better understanding of the theory. There will be additional hours (tutorato) devoted to discussion of exercises suggested by the lecturer.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Sets. Complex numbers and polynpmials. Linear systems, matrices, gaussian elimination, rank and determinants. Vector spaces, homomorphisms and diagonalization. Quadratic forms. Analytic geometry in 2-space and 3-space.

RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY

Material provided by the lecturer, available on the AulaWeb webpage of the course.
