The course credit (Z) is awarded at practicals after passing three brief (60 min.) tests. The test on topic 1) from the syllabus will be written during practicals on 13.3.2024; the test on topic 2) at practicals on 24.4.2024, and the test on topic 4) will be written within the first week of the examination period. Passing each test means gaining at least 50% of points from it.

After getting the course credit at practicals, students can attend the final exams. These exams consist of written and oral parts and they take place during the examination period. The written part (60 min.) comprises solving 2 practical examples from topics 1)-4). The oral part (60 min.) is a discussion of theoretical concepts (definitions and theorems from lectures) related to the examples in the written part.

  • Lecture notes and materials for practicals.

  • G. Strang, Introduction to Linear Algebra, Fifth Edition (2016).

  • J. Callahan, K. Hoffman, D. Cox, D. O’Shea, H. Pollatsek, L. Senechal: Calculus in Context, Five Colleges, Inc., 2008.

  • The most suitable literature for preparing yourself efficiently for exams and tests are notes taken at lectures and practicals. In addition, there exists a course page on Moodle:

Here, after logging in with your SIS/CAS credentials, you can read/download supporting study materials: PDF documents with lecture notes and examples from practicals. The documents will be regularly updated during the semester.

The course covers four topics:

1) Linear algebra: Linear vector spaces. Matrices and determinants, systems of linear equations, Gaussian elimination. Bilinear and quadratic forms, positive and negative definiteness.

2) Basic theory of functions of several variables: metric, limits, continuity. Partial derivatives and total differential, operators grad, div, rot. Multidimensional integral. Exchange of limits and integrals, derivatives and integrals.

3) Series: Number series, convergence and divergence, absolute and non-absolute convergence, Taylor series.

4) Ordinary differential equations and their systems: basic methods, Bernoulli and Euler equations, equations in the form of total differential, solving equations using series.
