Examination achievement PL1

  • Form of examination: oral examination (20-30 Min.)
  • Examination Frequency: each semester

Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


  • basic topological terms (metric spaces, connectedness, compactness),
  • differentiation (in the multi-dimensional case) - in particular: Taylor expansion, curves, implicit functions theorem, inverse function theorem, extremes under constraints,
  • integration (multi-dimensional) - in particular: Fubini's theorem, variable transformation,
  • geometry of Euclidean space (especially: orthogonal transformations, projections),
  • eigenvalues, diagonalisability, principal axis transformation, calculation of the Jordan normal form,
  • dual space.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of this module, the students
  • know and understand the basic concepts, propositions and methods of Linear Algebra and multi-dimensional Analysis; through the exercises and the tutorials they have acquired a confident, precise and independent handling of the terms, statements and methods dealt with in the lectures;
  • recognise the connections between the areas of Linear Algebra and Analysis;
  • are trained in analytical thinking; they are able to recognise abstract structures and to work on mathematical problems imaginatively;
  • have learned, on the basis of a proof- and structure-oriented approach, to comprehend mathematical proofs and to independently prove or disprove mathematical statements in simple examples;
  • are able to convey elementary mathematical facts; their teamwork and communication skills have been trained through exercises and tutorials.
