# Mathematics 2-IKV-102

## Contents

The lectures will provide students with basics of propositional and predicate logic, linear algebra, mathematical analysis, and probability that are important for the study of informatics and its role in (computational) cognitive science. At the same time, students will learn about mathematical culture, notation, way of thinking and expressing oneself.
