Course objective.
The course aims to equip students with basic knowledge of mathematical analysis and linear algebra. Students should acquire basic computational skills relevant to the functions of one variable and for solving systems of linear equations. Lectures are focused on the interpretation of the concepts of the differential calculus, basic arithmetical procedures and solving of typical exercises. Exercises are intended to practice the relevant issues.
The student is able to sketch graphs of elementary functions using the differential calculus. He also knows the basic concepts of linear algebra (matrices, determinants, etc.) including its applications in the linear programming.
Students can search for extremal values of functions of one variable and determine other specific properties related to the first or the second derivative of the given function.
General eligibility.
Graduates are able to work with functions of one real variable, which is the basic description of dependence of variables. Moreover, they become familiar with the basic linear algebra algorithms, which are important tools for linear programming used for optimization of linear problems.
