Information for lesson "Linear Algebra Khan Academy"
Description: Matrices, vectors, vector spaces, transformations. Covers all topics in a first year college linear algebra course. This is an advanced course normally taken by science or engineering majors after taking at least two semesters of calculus (although calculus really isn't a prereq) so don't confuse this with regular high school algebra. Linear algebra is a branch of mathematics that studies vector spaces, also called linear spaces, along with linear functions that input one vector and output another. Such functions are called linear maps (or linear transformations or linear operators) and can be represented by matrices if a basis is given. Thus matrix theory is often considered as a part of linear algebra. Linear algebra is commonly restricted to the case of finite dimensional vector spaces, while the peculiarities of the infinite dimensional case are traditionally covered in linear functional analysis.
