Course: STAT 31430=CAAM 31430
Title: Applied Linear Algebra
Instructor(s): Eric Baer
Teaching Assistant(s): Alex Li
Class Schedule: Sec 1: MW 1:30 PM-2:50 PM in Ryerson 177
Description: This course will provide a review and development of topics in linear algebra aimed toward preparing students for further graduate coursework in Computational and Applied Mathematics. Topics will include discussion of matrix factorizations (including diagonalization, the spectral theorem for normal matrices, the singular value decomposition, and the Schur and polar decompositions), and an overview of classical direct and iterative approaches to numerical methods for problems formulated in the language of linear algebra (including the conjugate gradient method). Additional topics will be included depending on student interests.
