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

    Less topology, more vector spaces and linear & affine transformations.

    its used to find eigen values of matrix A. called the characteristic equation.

    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.

    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.
