Course content
Polynomials (operations, Horner's algorithm, algebraic equations, the fundamental theorem of algebra). Matrix (matrix operations, determinant, the concept of inverse matrix). Systems of linear algebraic equations (Gauss elimination, Frobenius theorem, calculation of inverse matrix, other methods). Eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Vector calculus (basic operations, linear dependence, scalar, vector and mixed product). Analytic geometry in E3 (a description of linear objects, their relative position, distance and deviation, transversal lines for oblique lines). Geometric projection and transformation (homogeneous coordinates, affine transformations in E2 and E3). Coordinate systems (polar, spherical, cylindrical and their use). Non-linear objects (expression in vector and parametric form for curves, surfaces, conics and quadrics).
