(Science Park) **S2 054**.

## 4 Material

The completed script (PDF) is now available.

## 5 Format

The course is held as a lecture. All classes will be taught in English.

## 6 Prerequisites

Students are expected to have basic knowlegde in linear algebra. In particular, they should be familiar with fields, vector spaces, and matrices.

## 7 Grading

The grade in this course will be determined by a written exam.

The **exam date** is **Friday, June 30, 13:45–15:15** (that is, during
the last class).
