Ablauf der LV bei eingeschränktem Campusbetrieb

In case of limited activity on campus most units will take place online via MS Teams. Examinations (in particular mid term and final exam but also short presentations) will take place - if possible - on campus in rotation mode.

Inhalte der LV

After attending this session and studying its contents thoroughly students should be able to define the following concepts, to comprehend the concepts and explain their meaning, to state and explain the main results and to solve problems by applying the concepts.

  • Basic calculus and algebra
  • Linear algebra
  • Multivariate calculus
  • Static optimization

Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

After completing this course the student will have the ability to:

  • Describe, explain, and work with the basic concepts and definitions of linear algebra, one- and multivariable analysis, topology, static optimization.
  • Organize and integrate ideas and information from analysis and linear algebra.
  • Solve applied problems where skills are required from analysis and linear algebra.

Regelung zur Anwesenheit

For this lecture participation is obligatory. Students are allowed to miss a maximum of 20% (no matter if excused or not excused).


The course is taught as a lecture accompanied with weekly tutorials. The lectures are aimed at providing the theoretical framework, while the tutorials help students to comprehend the key ideas of the lectures. The tutorials are based on the week’s lecture and include relevant mathematical problems that have to be solved and discussed. Students present prepared problems (exercises as homework) and work on new ones in the class.

Leistung(en) für eine Beurteilung

  • 20% weekly tutorials, presentation of problems, homework
  • 40% midterm exam and 40% final exam

There will be no opportunity to retake the exams.

Erreichbarkeit des/der Vortragenden



Further reading:

The books from "Schaum´s Outline Series"  contain short but self-contained reviews of the mathematical concepts and a large collection of problems with solutions. Hence they are an ideal source for additional exercises.
