For current or prospective math majors. Introduction to theory and computations involving linear equations, matrices, inverses, determinants, vector spaces, rank, eigenvalues, diagonalization, inner products, norms, and orthogonality. Credit may not be earned for both MATH 2185 and MATH 2184. MATH 3971 may be taken as a corequisite.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
• State and prove basic properties of vector spaces and linear maps.
• State and prove relationships between geometric and algebraic approaches to linear maps.
• State and prove relationships between bases, invertibility, and eigenvalues of linear maps.
• Use all the above in solving computational and conceptual problems
