### Linear Algebra II University of Tsukuba

#### Course Overview

Following “Linear Algebra I”’, “Linear Algebra II” will also concentrate on the basics of linear algebra. Emphasis will be given to topics that

will be useful in other disciplines, such as determinants, eigenvalues,

positive definite matrices, Fourier series and the Fast Fourier

Transform. Some homework problems may require you to use a program such as MATLAB or Mathematica, an important tool for numerical linear algebra.

No previous programming experience is required.
