Læringsmål:- Solve systems of linear equations and multivariable optimisation problems
- Define the basic concepts of linear algebra and multivariable calculus, e.g., eigenvalues or directional derivative
- Compute the essential constructions of linear algebra and multivariable calculus, such as the inverse of a given matrix or the gradient of a function.
- Apply the tools of linear algebra and calculus to solve small mathematical problems.  Help
Fagligt indhold:This is a course in mathematics covering linear algebra and analysis (calculus) of functions of several variables. These are perhaps the two areas of mathematics that have found most uses in practical applications. In particular, the course equips the student with mathematical tools necessary for analysis of big data.

The topics covered in the linear algebra part of the course include systems of linear equations, matrices, determinants, vector spaces, bases, dimension, and eigenvectors. The topics covered in the calculus part include partial derivatives, gradients, Lagrange multipliers and multiple integrals. A number of applications of the material will be covered in the course, including least squares analysis and Google’s PageRank algorithm.  Help
Læringsaktiviteter:

14 weeks of lectures and exercises. At the exercise sessions the students will solve and present solutions to mathematical problems. The mandatory assignments are of the form of mathematical problems. The solutions must be submitted in written form.  Help

Obligatoriske aktivititer:There are 6 mandatory assignments, out of which 5 must be approved for the student to qualify for the exam.
The deadlines are evenly distributed over the semester (approximately one every 2 weeks), exact dates will be posted on learnit the first week of the semester.
If a mandatory assignment is not approved the first time, the student will be allowed to resubmit one week after the first deadline.

Be aware: The student will receive the grade NA (not approved) at the ordinary exam, if the mandatory activities are not approved and the student will use an exam attempt.  Help
Eksamensform og -beskrivelse:X: Eksperimentel eksamensform., (7-scale, external exam)
