Topic outline

  • General description

    This course exposes main concepts of linear algebra. Topics include: vector spaces, matrix algebra, determinants and its applications, dot product and orthogonality, eigen vectors and eigen values. This course prepares students to apply the basics of linear algebra in their domains of specialties: find the base of a vector space and calculate its dimension, apply matrix operations, find the matrix of a linear application, calculate determinant, study matrices and orthogonal sets, find eigen vectors and its corresponding values, diagonalize matrix and decompose matrix as a product of two matrices.
