This course introduces linear methods used in mathematics, physical sciences, social sciences, and engineering. The course presents basic concepts, theory, computational algorithms, and applications.
Used Mathematica notebooks to provide solutions to exam questions. Also, used online conferencing to announce the availability of sample quizzes and solutions on the web site for the course.
- Introduces matrices through Gaussian elimination.
- Proceeds to vector spaces and linear equations; orthogonality; eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
- Emphasizes engineering applications.
