### MS-A0001 - Matrix Algebra, 26.10.2020-08.12.2020

Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.

#### LEARNING OUTCOMES

After the course the student
- can write systems of linear equations in matrix form
- can solve systems of linear equations in matrix form using Gaussian elimination
- can perform basic matrix operations
- can compute the eigenvalues of a square matrix
- understands the significance of matrix decompositions
