Synopsis:

The subject summarizes the most important notions and theorems related to the study of vector spaces.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

Vector space -- linear independance, basis, dimension, subspace. Linear mapping (linear functional, linear operator) -- kernel, rank, defect, matrix of linear mapping. Dual space. Systems of linear algebraic equations -- Gauss elimination. Affine subspaces, convex sets.

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Examples of vector spaces. 2. Investigation of linear dependence/independence, basis, coordinates -- problems with parameters (especially in vector spaces of polynomials, matrices etc.). 3. Selection of basis vectors from a set of generators, completing a basis from linearly independent vectors. 4. Intersection and sum of subspaces -- their basis and dimension. 5. Assembling matrices of linear mappings -- especially in spaces of polynomials, matrices etc. 6. Linear functionals -- dual basis. 7. Systems of linear algebraic equations including systems with parameters. 8. Geometry of linear manifolds, intersection and mutual position of affine subspaces, intersection of convex sets and various ways of their description.

Study Objective:

Knowledge: Basic concepts of linear algebra. Skills: To be able to use these findings in further studies not only of mathematical disciplines, but also in physics, economics etc.
