Mathematics II

Subject description

Matrices (basic operations, matrix product, rank, determinant, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, linear transformations). Systems of linear equations (Gauss elimination, Cramer's rule).

Vectors (basic operations, scalar product, vector product, scalar triple product, analytic geometry). Function series (power series, Taylor series, Fourier series). Functions of two and more variables (partial derivatives, chain rule, extrema, conditional extrema). Ordinary differential equations (ODE) of the first order (with separable variables, linear). Linear ODE of higher orders (with constant coefficients, Euler's equation).

The subject is taught in programs

Electrical engineering 1st level

Objectives and competences

To present and upgrade basic mathematical concepts, procedures, and laws, and to deepen their understanding. To develop analytical thinking and careful and exact mathematical reasoning as well as other building blocks of science/mathematics/engineering literacy.

Teaching and learning methods

Lectures, tutorials, laboratory tutorials and homework assignments. Collective analysis, interpretation, and solving of technical problems.

Expected study results

After successful completion of the course, students should be able to:

  • solve basic problems of mathematical analysis and linear algebra, including matrices, vectors, function series, functions of several variables and ordinary differential equations,
  • solve some types of ordinary differential equations,
  • identify and understand technical/engineering problems in differently structured environments/contexts,
  • identify, analyse and use mathematical tools to solve simple natural science and engineering authentic problems,
  • appropriately display/communicate and critically evaluate the solution procedure and the obtained results,
  • demonstrate an appropriate attitude towards engineering practice and science.
