MS 241. Linear Algebra with Applications. 3 Hours.
This course begins with a generalized study of systems of linear equations, developing the notion of vectors and matrices. From these ideas naturally follows the study of vector spaces of dimension three or larger, including bases, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and matrix representations of linear transformations and change of bases. Applications discussed may include computer graphics, facial recognition, (internet) search optimization, linear programming, cryptography, Leontief economic analysis. Prerequisite(s): MS 181.
