Das Skript Mathematik für Informatiker, 1992/93, von Herrn Greuel bietet eine knappe Zusammenfassung der wesentlichen Inhalte seiner Vorlesung Lineare Algebra I - jedoch ohne Beweise! - und ist erhältlich im Sekretariat von Frau Kranz, 48-527.

Ein ausführlicheres Skript Lineare Algebra I & II, 1999/2000, das die wesentlichen Inhalte der Vorlesung inklusive der Beweise enthält, mit der Vorlesung jedoch nicht deckungsgleich ist, ist in der Bibliothek im Präsenzapparat einzusehen. In der zweiten Vorlesungwoche wird die Möglichkeit geboten, das Skript zum Selbstkostenpreis zu bestellen.

General Information:

Throughout the lecture the essential contents of linear algebra will be presented in a systematical way.

Once a week you will receive a set of exercises. These serve as a means to practise the methods of proof shown in the lecture and to recapitulate and understand its contents. The participants of the example classes are encouraged to work together with their fellow students in order to solve the exercises, but each student has to formulate the solution in his own words and hand it in seperately. The solutions will then be marked and discussed throughout the example class meetings.

The support class in linear algebra is a meeting designed purely to answer questions which could not be clarified in the lecture or the example class. The participants are supposed to bring their questions, and we hope to be able to give answers in return - where possible, answers based on examples. Nevertheless, you should not miss any opportunity to ask questions also throughout the lecture and the example classes.

Every participant of the the lecture Linear Algebra I should register for one of the example classes and for one of the support classes on Monday, 27th October. This can be done using the web interface available at

Exam Regulations for the Lecture:

The regulations for the "Vordiplom", the "Zwischenprüfung" respectively the bachelor degree require a certain amount of credits which are obtained by participating successfully in example classes. In order to receive these credits for the lecture Linear Algebra I in the winter term 2003/04, you have to participate regularly in the example classes satisfying the following additional criteria:

  1. at least 50% of the exercises have to be done in a sensible (not necessarily correct) way by yourself, and
  2. the two written exams in Linear Algebra I have to be passed (the credits for both exams are added).

The credit transcripts for the example class will be so called qualified transcripts, which means that they carry a mark. This mark will be calculated from the results of the two exams. However, should these results be considerably worse than your performance in the example classes, then your mark may be raised by one level. In particular, it is possible that you receive the credits even though you failed the exam! This, however, requires that the solutions which you handed in are clearly your own work and not just copied from somebody else. ("Own work" in this respect does not mean that you found them without cooperating with others, but that you wrote down the solution in your own understanding and your own words, and that you are capable of presenting them to your fellow students.)
