MTH 140 - Applied Linear Algebra

Course Units: 1.0
(Spring: Staff) Linear algebra has an enormous number of applications to the sciences and engineering. This course will cover the basics of linear algebra in Euclidean n-space, including linear systems, linear transformations, determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, orthogonality, and the singular value decomposition. An emphasis will be placed on applications, chosen from least-squares fitting, linear programming, image compression, Markov chains and discrete dynamical systems, computer graphics, principal component analysis, the Google PageRank algorithm, and others. Computer software such as MATLAB or Mathematica will be used in this course to perform numerical calculations. Prerequisite(s): MTH 115  . Note: Credit will not normally be given for both MTH 140 and MTH 340  . Exceptions require approval of a proposal from the student to the department chair.
