Synopsis:

Students understand the theoretical foundation of algebra and mathematical principles of linear models of systems around us, where the dependencies among components are only linear. They know the basic methods for operating with matrices and linear spaces. They are able to perform matrix operations and solve systems of linear equations. They can apply these mathematical principles to solving problems in 2D or 3D analytic geometry. They understand the error-detecting and error-correcting codes.

Requirements:

Secondary school mathematics.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Introduction: definition, theorem, proof. Types of proofs.

2. Set operations: Intersection, union, relative complement, Cartesian product. Maps, composite maps, inverse map, bijection, permutation.

3. Polynomials, roots of polynomials, irreducible polynomials. Polynomials in R, C, Q. Greatest common divisor and Euclid's algorithm. Binary operation, its properties. Group, ring, field. Homomorphisms (isomorphisms). Properties of a field. Finite fields.

4. Sets of linear equations. Gaussian elimination method.

5. Linear spaces, linear combination and linear independence.

6. Bases, dimensions, vector coordinates in a base. Coordinate transformations.
