This course provides a rigorous introduction to the theory of linear algebra. Topics covered include: matrices, linear equations, determinants, and eigenvalues; vector spaces and linear transformations; inner products; Hermitian, orthogonal, and unitary matrices; and Jordan normal form. MATH 540 provides a more theoretical treatment of the topics in MATH 520, and students will have opportunities during the course to develop proof-writing skills. Recommended prerequisite: MATH 100, MATH 170, or MATH 190. [MATH 540 may not be taken in addition to MATH 520.]
