In this course, topics include the methods of solving linear equations, Gaussian elimination, triangular factors and row exchanges, vector spaces (linear independence, basis, dimension, and linear transformations), orthogonality (inner products, projections, and Gram-Schmidt process), determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors (diagonal form of a matrix, similarity transformations, and matrix exponential), singular value decomposition, and the pseudo-inverse. The course also covers applications to statistics (least squares fitting to linear models, covariance matrices) and to vector calculus (gradient operations and Jacobian and Hessian matrices). MATLAB software will be used in some class exercises.
