Computational Linear Algebra
experience with a scientific programming language, and a grade of C or better in MAC 2312 (or in MAC 2512 or in MAC 3473).
Linear equations, matrices and determinants. Vector spaces and linear transformations. Inner products and eigenvalues. This course emphasizes computational aspects of linear algebra. (M) (MR)
is a 3 credit course on linear algebra that
the computational nature of the topics. These topics include
linear algebra, matrices, determinants, vectors, vector spaces,
linear transformations, inner products, eigenvalues, and applications.
Computer projects are assigned (around 4-6 per semester). Proofs
are not stressed as much as in MAS 4105 Linear Algebra 1.
Many instructors require the student to learn MATLAB, a programming
environment, for the projects.
This course is designed to serve science, computer science,
and engineering majors, and mathematics minors. Mathematics
majors are required to take MAS 4105.
MAC 2312 and knowledge of
a scientific programming language.
Linear Algebra and its Applications, third edition,
by Lay, with or without CD-ROM.
