Lectures: A -- Linear algebra 1. Arithmetic n-dimensional vector space, linear dependence/ independence of vectors, basis and dimension of a vector space. Scalar product and orthogonality of vectors. 2. Matrix algebra (addition, scalar multiple, matrix multiplication), rank of a matrix. 3. Determinant, definition and calculation. Matrix inverse. 4. Systems of linear algebraic equations, solvability, Frobenius theorem. Gaussian elimination. Cramer's rule. B -- Introduction to differential calculus 5. Real function of one real variable (domain, rank, graph), basic properties of functions and defined operations, review of elementary functions. 6. Limit and continuity of a function, one-sided limits, limit of a function at +/- infinity. Properties of continuous functions. 7. Derivative, geometric interpretation, tangent line of a function graph, differentiation rules, higher order derivatives, L' Hospital's rule. 8. Function investigation. Critical points, intervals of monotonicity, local and global extremes. 9. Convexity and concavity of function, inflex points. Function asymptotes. Examples. C -- Introduction to integral calculus 10. Primitive function and indefinite integral. Integration methods (integration by parts, method of substitution), simple examples of applications of the methods. 11. Integration by partial fractions and examples. 12. Riemann integral. Applications of Riemann integral in geometry and physics. 13. Summary. 14. Reserve.
