# Mathematics 2B for Electrical Engineering EE3208

## Course Objectives

The students will:

- Carry out calculations using complex numbers.
- Solve basic linear algebraic problems related to equation systems.
- Solve basic linear algebraic problems related to eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
- Use linear-algebraic methods for solving applied problems, particularly within the field of electrical engineering.
- Be able to use the Maple programme for all types of calculations and graphics in relation to assignments.

## Course Description

*Complex numbers:* Basic calculations. Calculation with complex numbers in Cartesian, trigonometric and exponential forms. Equations with complex solutions

*Linear algebra:* Matrix algebra, vector spaces, equation systems, Gauss and Gauss–Jordan elimination, Eigenvalues and eigenvectors with applications. Application, especially in connection with equation systems and eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

## Learning Methods

Lectures and exercises.

## Assessment Methods

Continuous assessment which counts for 40%, and a final examination which counts for 60% of the final course grade. During examinations, all printed and written aids, as well as laptops and calculators will be permitted.
