Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra (Undergraduate)  

This course introduces the central ideas of matrix theory and linear algebra. It emphasizes topics useful in other disciplines such as systems of equations, vector spaces, determinants, eigenvalues, similarity, and positive definite matrices. Applications to least-squares approximations, stability of differential equations, networks, Fourier transforms, and Markov processes.

This course is sophomore-junior level. The course website includes homework problems, projects, downloadable files, lab materials, lecture slides, course outline/syllabus, recommended books, and video lectures.

Ordinary Differential Equations and Linear Algebra (Undergraduate 2nd year)  

This course focuses on ordinary differential equations and some of their many applications. The course will take a multifaceted approach, including both analytic and numerical solution methods, as well as qualitative methods that enable us to discover properties of solutions without actually having a formula. Matrix algebra is a useful tool, and we will cover the parts of that subject which will be necessary for our use. MATLAB will be used throughout, both as a computational tool and as a remarkable aid to visualization.

Applied Linear Algebra and Introductory Numerical Methods  
Description: This course is an introductory graduate level course in numerical methods designed to give engineering, mathematics, and science students the expertise necessary to understand and use computational methods for solving scientific problems. The emphasis is on methods for linear algebra problems (direct methods for linear systems, linear least squares problems, algebraic eigenvalue problems) and methods for ordinary differential equations (the initial value problem).
