**Linear Algebra:**

Vectors, vector spaces, linear transformations, multilinear map, inner product spaces, norms, orthogonality, Gram-Schmidt algorithm, QR-factorisation, least square, Householder algorithm, normal matrices, Jordan canonical forms, Cayley-Hamilton theorem, minimal and characteristic polynomials, direct sum decompositions, generalised eigenspaces, functions of matrices, exponentials of matrices, etc will be studied in this course. Such material can be applied to linear programming, computer graphics, fractals, and many areas in natural sciences and social sciences.
