Phone: 471-7150 Email: email@example.com Text: Applied Linear Algebra; the Decoupling Principle, by Lorenzo Sadun (strongly recommended) and Linear Algebra , by Peter Lax (recommended) . We will attempt to cover the first 8 chapters of Sadun's book, with occasional sections skipped.
Use of Matlab will be required on some assignments.
Prerequisites: M340L or M341 or M311 or my permission. I expect you to have a good feel for manipulating matrices, especially row reduction, but also taking determinants. I also expect you to have seen abstract vector spaces and linear transformations, but some rustiness is expected -- we'll be reviewing that. I don't assume you've seen eigenvalues and eigenvectors at all; we'll do them from scratch.
