Math 416 Section D13 (Abstract Linear Algebra) Fall 2010

Course Description

Math 416 is a rigorous, abstract treatment of linear algebra. Topics to be covered include vector spaces, linear transformations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalizability, and inner product spaces. The course concludes with a brief introduction to the theory of canonical forms for matrices and linear transformations.

Linear algebra is notable for its striking blend of algebraic, analytic and geometric techniques, as well as for the beautiful interplay between abstract theory and concrete applications and algorithms. One of the goals of the course is to emphasize these notable features of the subject.
