CMATH 3011 Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra arises from generalizing the solving of simultaneous equations in two unknowns to many equations in many unknowns. We will find that these kinds of algebra problems can be analyzed and generalized in the theory of vector spaces. Vectors and matrices will be central mathematical structures that we study in this course. Topics we will cover include: linear systems and their solutions; linear transformations; matrix and vector algebra; vector spaces; determinants; eigenvalues and eigenvectors; and orthogonality.
