|Text:||Linear Algebra and Its Applications (Fifth Edition) by David Lay, Steven Lay, and Judi MacDonald, Pearson Education Limited, Harlow, 2016. We will cover the material of chapters 1 through 6 of the textbook, and also chapter 7 if time permits.|
|Description:||Linear algebra is the mathematical theory with which we analyze arrays.
As such, it is a subject that is rooted firmly in both theoretical and applied mathematics,
with deep applications to a wide-ranging list of subjects that include computer vision and graphics,
statistics and related data sciences, medical technologies, physics, engineering,...
Topics include: Euclidean space, linear systems, Gaussian elimination, determinants, inverses, vector spaces, linear transformations, quadratic forms, least squares and linear programming, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization. May include theoretical and computer lab components.
|No of Credits:||Four|
|Dates:||May 23 through August 3, 2016|
|Grading:||The students' final grades will be computed from the following formula:
