MATA22H3 Linear Algebra I for Mathematical Sciences

A conceptual and rigorous approach to introductory linear algebra that focuses on mathematical proofs, the logical development of fundamental structures, and essential computational techniques. This course covers complex numbers, vectors in Euclidean n-space, systems of linear equations, matrices and matrix algebra, Gaussian reduction, structure theorems for solutions of linear systems, dependence and independence, rank equation, linear transformations of Euclidean n-space, determinants, Cramer's rule, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, characteristic polynomial, and diagonalization.
