For an engineer, Linear Algebra is a basic tool for understanding specialized disciplines. The goals of this course are to understanding the following notions: matrices and properties of determinants, how to solve a linear systems, vector spaces, basis in a vector space, linear transformations and change of basis, eigenvalues and eigenvectors for a linear transformation and for a matrix, orthogonalization by Gram-Schmidt process.
Since the homework is essential in learning linear algebra, the course has many worked examples, and a homework at the end of each lesson. Each homework has answers for the exercises.
There will be one exam at two hours after 12 lessons with note N1, and the final exam at two hours at the end of the 24 lessons with note N2. The final note is N=(N1+N2)/2.
