## Description

Linear Algebra Complements, Reduction Theory, and Applications

# Complements of linear algebra, the notion of direct sum

# Determinants

# Reduction: diagonalization and applications to the study of discrete and continuous dynamical systems in physics, chemistry, biology or economics.

## Objectives

The aim of the course is to introduce the mathematical tools needed to study simple models of population evolution in biology, or of interacting actors in economics, or pharmacological models in chemistry (compartment models), etc., with precision.

Machine implementation is not a direct objective of the course, but depending on student demand, it may include computer programming activities.

## Necessary prerequisites

First-year linear algebra course

## Knowledge control

continuous monitoring
