Matrix Analysis With Applications

Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee and NPTEL via Swayam

This course may be unavailable.


This course is offered to UG and PG students of Engineering/Science background. It contains the concepts related to matrix theory and their applications in various disciplines. It covers a depth understanding of matrix computations involving rank, eigenvalues, eigenvectors, linear transformation, similarity transformations, (diagonalisation, Jordan canonical form, etc). It also involves various iterative methods, including Krylov subspace methods. Finally, topics like positive matrices, non-negative matrices and polar decomposition are discussed in detail with their applications.INTENDED AUDIENCE:UG and PG students of technical universities/collegesPREREQUISITES:NILINDUSTRY SUPPORT:NIL
