Description

An introductory course to linear algebra. Covers basic notions: vectors and matrices, systems of linear equations, matrix operations, linear spaces, scalar product, eigenvalues and diagonalization. We will also look at applications of linear algebra (linear models, least squares method) and show how to solve linear algebraic problems on a computer (using Octave).

The main goal is to get the students to speak the language of linear algebra and gain insight into how various algebraic methods work.
