Content  Topics include algebra (groups, rings, fields, polynomial rings, coset, and Lagrange's theorem) and linear algebra (vector spaces, linear mappings and their matrix representations, rank of a matrix, base changes, orthonormal bases, systems of linear equations and their solution using the Gaussian algorithm, determinants, eigenvectors and eigenvalues, orthogonal and symmetric matrices 

Objectives  Students gain knowledge of algebraic structures and linear algebra and their applications in computer science. They are able to reason about abstract algebraic structures and correctly apply the methods and algorithms of linear algebra to solve systems of linear equations and describe geometric facts. After this module, students have confidence in formally correct mathematical reasoning and its presentation.
