Linear algebra is the mathematical technology used in a wide variety of applications: Google's page rank algorithm, image compression, coding theory applies in CDs, models in biology and economy, to name a few.

We will teach you to work with vectors and matrices, compute their invariants and canonical forms and interprete those geometrically. We will givbe several practical applications of these methods.
