Short description:

Course objectives:

A student becomes familiar with basic notions of affine and metric affine geometry and with properties of transformations which preserve basic relations of these geometries.

Full description:

Course profile: academic

ECTS credits: 4

Balance of student workload:

attending lectures15x2h = 30h

attending exercise classes 7x4h + 2h(preliminary teaching) = 30h

preparation for classes 7x3h = 21h

completing notes after exercises and lectures 7x2h = 14h

consultations 5x2h = 10h

the final examination: preparation.and take 15h + 4h = 19h

Quantitative description

Learning outcomes:

Learning outcomes:

Knows basic techniques of the analytical affine geometry; in particular: he can determine equations of a line, a plane, and of an arbitrary subspace characterized in terms of their geometrical position, can solve problems where the affine cross ratio is involved, can apply the Ceva and the Menelaos Theorem.K_W04, K_U17, K_U18

Knows fundamental types of affine transformations and their analytical characterization, can characterize affine transformations determined by means of simple invariants.K_W04, K_W05, K_U20

Knows fundamental systems of notions used to characterize Euclidean Geometry (orthogonality, equidistance); can characterize mutual position of spheres and subspaces. Can use inversion to translate problems of inversive ((Moebius) geoemetry into the language of Euclidean Geometry and vice versa.K_W04, K_U17, K_U18

Knows and can use (in simple cases) principles of classification of isometries of Euclidean Spaces.K_W04, K_U17, K_U18

After completing the course student gets backgrounds enabling him to learn and develop classical geometry.K_W06, K_K01, K_K02
