2) Perron-Frobenius theory and its applications

3) tensor product

4) Hermitian and positive semidefinite matrices

Requirements:

Successful completion of courses Linear algbera and General algebra.

Syllabus of lectures:

2. Canonical forms of matrices with real resp. rational entries.

3. Relation between matrices and graphs

4 Non-negative matrices and the Perron-Frobenius theorem, stochastic matrices.

5. The tensor product of matrices and its properties.

6. Hermitian matrices, the interlacing theorem

7. Positive semidefinite matrices, the Hadamard inequality

Syllabus of tutorials:
Study Objective:

Acquired knowledge: fundamental results in the theory of canonical forms of matrices, in the Perron-Frobenius theory for nonnegative matrices, the spectral theory for the hermitian matrices and the tensor product of matrices.

Acquired skills: applications of these results in the graph theory, for group representations, in the algebraic number theory, in numerical analysis.
