# Theory

Goal:
Understanding elementary matrix algebra, and the determinant and inverse of a matrix. Understanding a linear system of equations both as a set of lines/(hyper)planes in x-space and in the space of column vectors. Understanding that f(x)=Ax is a linear function/mapping in x, (like the projection Px onto a given matrix, the rotation Rx, etc).
Understand the extension of the number system to complex numbers, and the algebra of these.
Understanding the definition of a graph having a tangent, the concept of "linearization" of a function close to a given point, and the related definition of the derivative of a function.

AMB&S chap. 20 (last part), 21 (some parts, for example sections 21.22 and 21.26) and 23 (the Derivative, first part)

Excercises:

Project:
Project f(x)=0 : Oral presentation on Friday. Written report on Monday morning!

# Matlab

Goal:
To learn relevant matlab notation and syntax related to elementary matrix calculation, and to get to better understand the matrix algebra through matlab.
