Abstract

The course of Algebra and Analysis (modules 1, 2) is intended for beginners. Its goal is to introduce the students to the language of mathematics and basic ideas of vectors, matrices, derivation, and integration. These are indispensable tools of any domain of science using data analyses. Special attention will be devoted to applications. This course will help you to gain a higher level of mathematical maturity necessary in subsequent courses.
