  • Examination Frequency: irregular (by arrangement)
  • Examination number: 84153 ("Multilinear Algebra")

Evaluation of grades

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


Contents

  • multilinear maps (bilinear forms, determinants, duality),
  • tensors (general properties, tensor algebra),
  • symmetric and exterior algebra (decomposition theorems, complex algebra, polynomial algebra),
  • functorial properties (exact sequences, flat modules, derived functors),
  • Applications (e.g. derivations and differentials, Koszul complex, K-theory).

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon completion of this module, the students have acquired an in-depth knowledge in mathematical foundations. Based on their knowledge of Linear Algebra, they have learnt how to understand abstract algebraic structures and they are able to work with them confidently. They understand the proofs presented in the lecture and are able to comprehend and explain them.
