Linear Algebra II (Honours)
This course is a continuation of MATH2021.03. The content is
similar to that of MATH2222.03 but is more theoretical and
more topics and applications. We will study linear
transformations and eigenvalues with applications to quadratic
forms, Markov chains, least squares approximations and
isometries. The high points of the course are the CayleyHamilton
Theorem and the orthogonal diagonalization of symmetric
The text will be the same as for MATH2021.03.
The final mark will be based on the homework (20%) two in-class
tests (40%) and a final examination (40%).
Prerequisites: AS/SC/MATH2021.03 or permission of the course coordinator.
Exclusions: AS/SC/MATH2000.06, AS/SC/MATH2222.03.
