Math 301, Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra, Fall 2011.


We will be studying the mathematics of phenomena that depend linearly on several parameters. As a first example, to develop geometric intuition, we consider linear transformations of vectors in the plane. We then study systems of linear equations, which motivate the study of matrix equations and matrix decompositions. We also investigate a variety of applications. Finally we will study abstract vector spaces and inner product spaces.
