Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmm :/ So where do i start ?

hba

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Maybe I should start with Vectors ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Less topology, more vector spaces and linear & affine transformations.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, you should start with vectors.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess I'd let hartnn do the thing :)

hba

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well i learnt how to evaluate determinants two years ago,I think i know how to do that :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what about transformations in rows and columns ?? like R1=R1+R2 R3=4*R3 and so on...

hba

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No i am not sure about that :/

hba

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah i remember that :) What is this equation btw ? \[Ax=\lambda x\]

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2its used to find eigen values of matrix A. called the characteristic equation.

hba

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well the book says it is a key equation. Anyways,What next @hartnn ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Elementary 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 rowechelon form.

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and don't worry, its not difficult.

hba

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well,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 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@hba do you have a solid understanding of proofs?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you don't know anything about vectors ??

hba

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well i had a whole chapter dedicated to vectors which i studied two years ago :)

hba

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for 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.
