This subject builds on matrix algebra covered in previous studies and includes the topics vector spaces, subspaces, linear transformations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, inner products and orthonormal bases. Applications of postgraduate level linear algebra, as well as matrix algebra are both covered here.

MTH219

- be able to investigate and discuss in depth the mathematical concepts of linear algebra such as: vector spaces, inner products, linear transformations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors;
- be able to apply the processes of linear algebra to solve particular problems including: solving systems of linear equations, inverting a matrix, finding eigenvalues and eigenvectors;
- be able to apply and discuss the concepts and processes of linear algebra in relation to a number of real world problems.

- Review of vectors in R2 and R3, matrices, determinants, solution of systems of linear equations.
- Vector spaces, subspaces, bases and dimension.
- Inner products and orthonormal bases.
- Linear transformations, matrix representation of a linear transformation.
- Eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
