Course content

We deal with elements of linear algebra and the theory of matrices. We study arithmetic vector spaces, matrices and applications of matrices for solving problems from linear algebra. Content: Matrices and operations with matrices. Arithmetic vector spaces, linearly (in)dependent syste, of vectors, basis, dimension. Row echelon form of matrices and their rank. System of linear equations. Gauss elimination method. Determinants. Inverse matrix, matrix equations. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors of matrices.
