# Introductory course in linear algebra and differential equations 2019

**See HERE for 2020 course**

The purpose of this course is to give a brief introduction to linear algebra and ordinary differential equations for incoming two year master students, who don't have the necessary backgrounds or wish a repetition of the subjects. The course is voluntary, but recommended. There is **no exam**, and no registration (just meet up to class).

**27. June 2019:**Welcome to introductory course in linear algebra and differential equations. The course starts at**5th of August**.
