  • Overview

    Course Description and Objectives:

    Linear algebra is an area of mathematics that studies systems of linear equations and the properties of matrices. It has become an indispensable tool in many branches of sciences from mathematics to engineering or economics. In this course we study basic concepts and theorems in Linear Algebra including systems of linear equations and their solutions, determinants, vector spaces, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization of matrices, orthogonality and least squares.

    Audience :

    This course is aimed at students who want to employ basic linear algebra theories, especially those of matrices or vector spaces in their research areas. This includes students from a wide range of majors such as life sciences, economics, humanities, engineering, physics and mathematics. This course does not have pre-requisites.

    Objectives:

    After taking this course, students will be able to • formulate and solve systems of linear equations • compute mathematical problems in sciences with matrices • understand elementary facts about vector spaces • find the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix • perform linear transformations
