Linear algebra is, together with calculus, one of the most important fields of mathematics for computations and applications. For example, it is a major tool in data mining, the set of methods and processes to identify patterns in large sets of data. In many applications, the problem is formulated mathematically; it is then converted to a linear algebra problem; the linear algebra problem is solved, and the results are interpreted. In this course, students learn the theoretical concepts and some of the computational methods of linear algebra.
