Prerequisites
Not applicable

Objectives
1. Students will acquire knowledge in:
1.1. mathematical analysis
1.2. financial mathematics
1.3. linear algebra
2. will be provided with mathematical tools needed for problem-solving
3. will develop logical reasoning skills

Program
I - Mathematical Analysis
1. Basics of algebraic calculus
2. General considerations on real functions of a real variable
3. Differential calculus and its applications
4. Integral calculus and its applications
5. Basics of financial mathematics
II - Linear algebra
1. Basics of matrices and determinants
2. Algebra of matrices
3. Rouché theorem and linear equations systems resolution

Evaluation Methodology
Continuous assessment: T1 (0-5 val.)+ T2 (0-10 val.)+ T3 (0-5 val.) mandatory and all closed-book. If in the sum of T1 + T2 the students who obtain between 7.5 and 9.4 (7.5<=T1+T2<=9.4), they can still take a 3rd test (0-3 val.) Students who commit fraud will be excluded from the evaluation process. Final assessment: one closed-book written test graded 0-20 covering all subject matters taught. (minimum pass mark: >10)
