|Program||Texts (theory and exercises)|
|Diary of lessons of the part of this course concerning linear algebra and geometry|
Prerequisites: Linear algebra: matrices, linear systems, gaussian
Vector spaces: Subspaces, linearly independent vectors, generators (spanning sets), bases, dimension.
Diagonal form of a matrix: eigenvalues, eigenvectors, eigenspaces.
Scalar products. Orthogonal vectors. Orthonormal bases. Orthogonal matrices.
Spectral theorem (symmetric matrices are diagonalizable). Quadratic forms.
Analytic geometry of plane: conic sections.
Analytic geometry of space: lines, planes, distances, circles, spheres.
An outline of the program is the following:

analitica (in italian)
Gilbert Strang - Linear algebra (in english)
R. A. Adams - Calcolo Differenziale 1 (numerical integration,
series) both in italian and english
R. A. Adams - Calcolo Differenziale 2 (triple ntegrals and surface integrals) both in italian and english
