Contents

Foundations of mathematics:

elementary set theory, number domains, induction, functions, propositional calculus and its use in mathematical proofs

Linear algebra:

• Vector spaces and linear maps
• Matrices and linear systems of equations
• Determinants and eigenvalues
• Euclidean vector spaces and selfadjoint endomorphisms
• geometric aspects of linear algebra

Qualification Goals

Competences:

The students can

• understand and use the basic principles of linear structures, linearization and coordinate systems and are familiar with the associated basic concepts,
• apply mathematical methods to concrete questions,
• can distinguish between mathematical intuition and formal deduction and can use and relate both components,
• know and understand the principles of strict axiomatic construction of mathematical theories through the comparatively simple structure of a vector space,
• have basic knowledge and linear algebra skills required for the entire degree program, especially for the modules Analysis, Algebra, Complex Analysis, Geometry.

Qualification goals:

The students know and understand the basic principles of linear structures and their conceptualization in linear algebra. They are familiar with basic mathematical methods and the importance of building an axiomatic theory.

None.
