MATH 26 INTRODUCTION TO LINEAR ALGEBRA


4 Units 4 hours lecture
Transfers: CSU, UC
Prerequisite: MATH 3B
Develops the techniques and theory needed to solve and classify systems of linear equations. Solution techniques include row operations, Gaussian elimination, and matrix algebra. Investigates the properties of vectors in two and three dimensions, leading to the notion of an abstract vector space. Vector space and matrix theory are presented including topics such as inner products, norms, orthogonality, eigenvalues, eigenspaces, and linear transformations. Selected applications of linear algebra are included.
