Matrices, vector spaces, linear transformations, inner products, determinants. Eigenvectors. QR factorization. Quadratic forms and Rayleigh's principle. Jordan canonical form, applications. Linear functionals.This catalog description gives you some idea of what we will cover. I have taught Math 110 twice before: in the Fall, 2002 semester and in the Fall, 2003 semester. The second course was the honors linear algebra course, H110. Please consult my course web pages to get some sense of what it's like to take a class from me. Look also at Richard Borcherds's page of pages for other Berkeley math web sites.
Recommended Reading: There are quite a few good linear algebra books. You can use the math department course archives to find the textbooks that have been used in Math 110 for the last two years. Whenever you feel stuck when reading our text, consult alternative treatments. Reading several discussions of one topic is often illuminating.
A book that we have used frequently in the past is Linear Algebra Done Right by Sheldon Axler . This book was based partly on ideas from Axler's article Down with Determinants!, which you might enjoy reading.
