The objectives of the course are that students:
 will learn the basic concepts of matrix calculations,
 are able to apply these concepts to solve linear algebra problems.


The course will cover the following topics:
 Systems of linear equations and their solutions (GaussJordan procedure)
 Vector spaces and linear transformations
 Matrix multiplication
 Calculating a matrix inverse
 Eigenvalues and eigenvectors
 Calculating the determinant
 Inner product and orthogonal projections (GramSchmidt procedure)
We will also provide examples of how the abovementioned concepts are used in Artificial Intelligence. 




Weekly assignments and a written exam. It is forbidden to use resources, such as calculators or books, during the written examination.
The written examination will consist of problems similar to those which will be discussed in the weekly assignments. 25% of the final mark will be based on the practical assignments while the other 75% will be determined by the written examination mark. You will need to score a minimum of 5.5 on the written examination to pass this course! It will not be possible to resubmit assignments. 
There are no explicit prerequisites but it is assumed that students have a good basic knowledge of secondary school mathematics.
