MATH 104: Applied Matrix Theory
Linear algebra for applications in science and engineering: orthogonality, projections, spectral theory for symmetric matrices, the singular value decomposition, the QR decomposition, leastsquares, the condition number of a matrix, algorithms for solving linear systems.
MATH 113 offers a more theoretical treatment of linear algebra.
MATH 104 and
EE 103/
CME 103 cover complementary topics in applied linear algebra. The focus of
MATH 104 is on algorithms and concepts; the focus of
EE 103 is on a few linear algebra concepts, and many applications. Prerequisites:
MATH 51 and programming experience on par with
CS 106.
