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

A student who successfully completes the course will be able to: be familiar with advanced concepts about matrices over field, understand basic results about matrices over commutative rings, apply computational techniques for generalized eigenvalue problems and for computing general functions of a matrix.
