Linear algebra and Fourier series

7.5 credits

Linear algebra is the branch of mathematics concerned with the study of linear spaces, linear maps, and systems of linear equations. It is a fundamental part of modern mathematics and it has extensive applications in science, since nonlinear models often can be approximated by linear ones. The main subjects of the course are linear spaces, linear maps, determinants, diagonalization of linear maps and quadratic forms.


Växjö is a modern city with more than 80,000 inhabitants. The city has been declared "the Greenest City in Europe" because of its focus on environmentally sound solutions and the environmental programs implemented.

Being a student in Växjö you have easy access to everything – the city centre, the woods and the lakes. The pedestrian path from campus around Lake Växjösjön reaches almost all the way to the city centre and is perfect for jogging or taking long walks.

Campus Växjö is modeled along the lines of an American campus university and is the natural meeting place for students in Växjö. Campus is always bustling with life, and students move between lecture rooms, the University Library and the restaurants, pubs and outdoor recreational areas.
