A First Course in Linear Algebra

A First Course in Linear Algebra is an introductory textbook aimed at college-level sophomores and juniors. Typically such a student will have taken calculus, but this is not a prerequisite. The book begins with systems of linear equations, then covers matrix algebra, before taking up finite-dimensional vector spaces in full generality. The final chapter covers matrix representations of linear transformations, through diagonalization, change of basis and Jordan canonical form. Along the way, determinants and eigenvalues get fair time.

This is a textbook for a one-semester course in linear algebra and vector spaces. An emphasis is made on the coordinate free analysis. The course mimics in some ways a modern algebra course. Calculus is a prerequisite for the course.

These are the lecture notes and tutorial problems for the Linear Algebra module. The text is divided into three parts: (1) real vector spaces and their linear maps; (2) univariate polynomials; (3) introduction to algebraic coding theory.
