  • Linear algebra: vectors and matrices, systems of linear equations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, planes and hyperplanes.
  • Analysis: functions, differential calculus in one-dimensional and multi-dimensional space, Lagrange, applications of differential.

calculus, integral calculus in one-dimensional space, first-order differential equations.

  • Linear optimization: graphical solution of linear programs.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able to
  • reproduce the basic concepts and statements of linear algebra and analysis.
  • handle the terms, statements and methods of the lecture independently and apply them in examples.
  • solve linear optimization problems, as they have learned and practiced this by example.
  • further develop the concepts and methods of linear algebra and analysis specific to their subject, as well as their practical application, which are needed in the further course of study, as they develop a solid basis for the proper handling of mathematics in economics to have.
