Short course description Line

This course is an introduction to linear algebra and matrix computations for computer scientists. It covers the fundamentals of linear algebra (vectors, matrices, determinants, rank, eigenvalues, ...), as well as standard algorithms for solving common matrix problems (linear systems, eigenvalue problems, least squares systems, ...). The main emphasis of the course is to provide you with a solid foundation in linear algebra and matrix computations. It is a very important course because Linear Algebra plays a central role in many computer science areas (computer graphics, data mining, robotics, networking, ...). One of the stated goals of csci2033 is to show a few real world illustrations of the use of matrix computations, often taken from computer science.
