(Abstract) Linear Algebra LinAlg

My students (well, Thom) created a LinAlg facebook page.

Various math czars who help out.

Webpages: Lina, 2010 and which also has Lina, 2005, as well as Computational Linear Algebra from 2007 (Spring and Autumn), 2002 and 1998. All of my previous course “Notes, Exams and Links” are available from the Teaching Page.

Optional: Individual Linear-Algebra project (pdf) Prof.

...will be due, slid u n d e r room 402 Little Hall my office door (Little Hall 402, Northeast corner) , no later than 10AM, Monday, 12Dec2011.

The final project must be carefully typed, but diagrams may be hand-drawn.



At all times have a paper copy you can hand-in; I do NOT accept electronic versions. Print out a copy each day, so that you always have the latest version to hand-in; this, in case your printer or computer fails. (You are too old for My dog ate my homework.)

Please follow the guidelines on the Checklist Checklist (pdf, 3pages) to earn full credit.

This demo page illustrates these linear transformations: Dilations, Rotations and Shears. It also shows the affine transformation of Translation.

We'll learn the Euclidean algorithm in the form of the Lightning bolt algorithm (LBolt).

Please peruse the Wikipedia pages that define Group, Ring, Field as well as Set builder notation.


In all of my courses, attendance is absolutely required (excepting illness and religious holidays). In the unfortunate event that you miss a class, you are responsible to get all Notes / Announcements / TheWholeNineYards from a classmate, or several. All my classes have a substantial class-participation grade.

General Info

Our LinA class has a LISTSERV archive. I will email to each student how to post-to and read-from the Archive. (The archive is at a private URL, only for the use of the folks in our class.)

Our Lina syllabus has the first homework and reading assignment. It also mentions Class photo Day.


Our main textbook is Linear Algebra (4th edition).
