  • Second exam session: January 18, h 14:30

The graded assignments of December and January can be seen two-three days after the above dates.

Assessment method:

  1. Midterm (50%) + final exam at  the first exam session (50%).  Both written tests only, including  theoretical  questions. OR
  2. Written test, with questions and problems on the whole program.

On the cum laude.  If you get the maximum score (30 cum laude) in the written test, you have the following two options:

i) Take an additional oral test. If positive, your final grade will be 30 cum laude.  If the oral test is negative, the grade may be lowered  to a minimum of 27 depending on how you perform;

ii) Skip the oral test. Your grade will be 30.


What will the  written test be about?

  1. The test will cover what done during lectures up to Thursday, December 3.
  2. For the students who passed  the midterm,  here is a mock final exam (without the theoretical questions) with the  solutions mock final exam 
  3.   For the others,   use the mock midterm and mock final together as a scheme for the comprehensive exam.
  4. Proofs you may be asked in the final exam:
  •  Injectivity, bijectivity and surjectivity of a linear  map T: R^n –> R^m via the rank of the associated matrix A.
  •  Eigenvectors  relative to different eigenvalues are linearly independent.
  • Cauchy-Schwarz inequality.

4. Comprehensive exam  required proofs:  the above three plus  the two listed below for the midterm.

  • Here you can find a mockmidterm exam and the  solutions
  •  Proofs you may be asked in the test: Rouché-Capelli theorem and the proposition on the equivalent characterization of linear dependence.
