Lectures: 3 LeConte Hall, TuTh 2:10-3:30

Optional discussion sections: Monday, 3:10-4 in 247 Cory Hall and Thursday, 11:10-12 in 285 Cory.

This course doubled in size because of its large waiting list. As a result, graduate student instructor Tom Coates will be working with this class in a number of ways. His Web page for Math 110 contains information for our course. Tom will conduct the two weekly discussion sections, hold office hours, and assist with quiz and exam grading.

Matrices, vector spaces, linear transformations, inner products, determinants. Eigenvectors. QF (sic.) factorization. Quadratic forms and Rayleigh's principle. Jordan canonical form, applications. Linear functionals.This intimidating list gives you some idea of what will go on, but we won't cover every topic! I will follow the book as closely as possible.

**Recommended Reading:**
There are quite a few good
linear algebra books in circulation; see the
textbook
lists for some examples.
Whenever you feel stuck when reading our
text,
feel free to consult alternative treatments.
Reading several discussions
of one topic is often illuminating.
One excellent book is
