# Algebra with geometry I 1100-1AF10

The purpose of the course is to explain notions that appear in mathematics and physics throughout the entire period of studies. These abstract notions will be illustrated with various examples to make them maximally comprehensible and to demonstrate their usefulness in physics.

1. Complex numbers, number fields.

2. Third degree algebraic equations.

3. Basic properties of polybomials, the greatest common divisor.

4. The notion of a group, permutation groups, permutation sign and the decomposition of permutation into cycles.

5. Vector spaces, linear independence, basis, subspaces, sums and intersections of subspaces.

6. Linear maps, kernel, image, the matrix of a linear map.

7. Determinant.
