Analysis and Linear Algebra K, Kf, Bt, part A, 2004

home, week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, week 5, week 6, week 7


Understanding vectors and fundamental vector and matrix algebra, including projections, rotations, reflections etc. Further, linear systems of equations and a first taste of the important concepts linear dependence/independence of vectors, and basis.

Understanding the fundamentals of complex numbers and their arithmetic, and the basic fact that any n'th degree polynomial equation has exactly n roots.
