Linear algebra is about topology and vectors and stuff if I am not wrong.

Looking for something else?

  • hba
Hmm :/ So where do i start ?
hba
  • hba
Maybe I should start with Vectors ?

@hartnn can you help ?

  • anonymous
Less topology, more vector spaces and linear & affine transformations.
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Yes, you should start with vectors.
hartnn
  • hartnn
Matrices is easier.
hartnn
  • hartnn
can you evaluate determinants ?
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
I guess I'd let hartnn do the thing :)
hba
  • hba
Well i learnt how to evaluate determinants two years ago,I think i know how to do that :)
hba
  • hba
Hmm @ParthKohli
hartnn
  • hartnn
what about transformations in rows and columns ?? like R1=R1+R2 R3=4*R3 and so on...
hba
  • hba
R1=R1+R2 ?
hba
  • hba
No i am not sure about that :/

  • hba
Yeah i remember that :) What is this equation btw ? \[Ax=\lambda x\]
hartnn
  • hartnn
its used to find eigen values of matrix A. called the characteristic equation.
hba
  • hba
Well the book says it is a key equation. Anyways,What next @hartnn ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Elementary row operations are rather insignificant here... you need them to do Gaussian elimination but linear algebra is a broader field than merely reducing matrices to row-echelon form.
hartnn
  • hartnn
and don't worry, its not difficult.
hba
  • hba
Well,I am gonna start with the course on 4th feb,so i am sorta worried because i heard it is difficult. Do i need to know anymore things before hand @hartnn ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@hba do you have a solid understanding of proofs?
hartnn
  • hartnn
you don't know anything about vectors ??
hba
  • hba
Well i had a whole chapter dedicated to vectors which i studied two years ago :)
hartnn
  • hartnn
revise it properly...
hba
  • hba
@oldrin.bataku I am just starting Uni. So i am not sure what sorta proofs you are talking about @hartnn Sure i will revise all of them again :)
hba
  • hba
So Matrices,Determinants,Vectors ? What else ?
hba
  • hba
What about linear transformations ?
hartnn
  • hartnn
go through math.mit.edu link , there you will find topics....
hba
  • hba
What about fourier series,Can you tell me about that ?

  • hba
Thanks a lot @Callisto
hba
  • hba
@hartnn I wanna know about Fourier series ?
Callisto
  • Callisto
Fourier tranforms is in unit III
hba
  • hba
Oh thanks a lot @Callisto @oldrin.bataku and @hartnn
hba
  • hba
I will just review the MIT OCW Vids :)

  • experimentX
for beginners this will be good material http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/LinAlg/LinAlg.aspx MIT ocw focuses more on engineering, if you are interested in learning linear algebra i suggest you follow a good book.
Callisto
  • Callisto
Sorry I did something wrong, big thanks to @experimentX Fourier series is in 18.03 http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/mathematics/18-03sc-differential-equations-fall-2011/unit-iii-fourier-series-and-laplace-transform/fourier-series-basics/

here a list of them ... I am following Linear Algebra by Serge Lang http://mathoverflow.net/questions/98338/can-anyone-recommand-a-good-textbook-for-self-learning-linear-algebra

And I am not typing.. @hartnn

Ha ha ha..

Just kidding @hba ..
hba
  • hba
It's fine. @experimentX Should i follow the same book ?
