Introduction to Linear Algebra
MAT 211 (LEC 3)
Welcome to Linear Algebra! In Spring 2009, the course MAT 211 is given in the following three lecture groups:
This course provides an elementary introduction to linear algebra. It covers systems of linear equations, Gauss-Jordan elimination, matrices and determinants, vector (linear) spaces and linear transformations, bases, dimension, the Kernel-Image theorem, inner-product spaces, orthogonality, Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization. Algebraic objects are considered together with their geometric interpretations.
