MATH 115 – Linear Algebra for Engineers Fall 2008 Objectives: MATH 115 is an introduction to abstract vector spaces, the algebra and geometry of R n , and the abstract theory of vector spaces. We approach the material through a blend of theoretical ideas and computational methods, such as Gaussian elimination for solving systems of linear equations. Various applications are also studied.
