Linear Algebra

Indian Institute of Science Bangalore and NPTEL via Swayam


Linear Algebra is a foundational subject in Mathematics which is of fundamental importance in the development of almost every branch of Mathematics, Theoretical Physics and Computer Science. A good understanding of the subject is also crucial to the study of most Engineering disciplines and many problems in Social Sciences. Linear Algebra can be succinctly described as the study of Linear Transformations and its algebraic properties.
