General descriptionThis is an introductory course in linear algebra and matrix theory, which are important branches of mathematics concerning vector spaces and matrices. We will study topics that will be useful in other disciplines, including systems of linear equations, matrix arithmetic and matrix algebra, determinants, vector spaces and bases, linear transformations, orthogonal subspaces, least squares problems, inner product spaces, Gram-Schmidth orthogonalization, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization, Hermitian matrices, and the singular value decomposition. Emphasis will be given to concepts, computational methods, and applications. MATLAB will be used throughout the course.
Text bookLinear Algebra with Applications by Steven J. Leon, 7th or 8th or 9th edition (required).
