Course Description & Objectives:

The course in Linear Algebra II is both skill and application oriented. Having discovered at the end of Linear algebra I that all matrices were not diagonalizable, the course sets out to find the next best thing that could be done for such matrices.

Learning Outcomes:

- demonstrate basic competence in the concepts, principles, procedures and applications of linear transformations
- explain matrix representations of linear transformations.
- transform matrices of linear mappings from one basis to another
- explain canonical forms and the invariant subspace decomposition of linear maps.
- solve problems of approximations in inner product spaces.
