Synopsis:

This course covers introductory topics of linear algebra. The main focus

is on

the related notions of linear spaces and linear transformations (linear

independence, bases and coordinates) and matrices (determinants, inverse

matrix, matrix of a linear mapping, eigenvalues). Applications include

solving systems of linear equations, geometry in 3-space (including dot

product and cross product), and solving linear differential equations.
