**You need to learn linear algebra!**

Linear algebra is perhaps *the most important* branch ofmathematics for computational sciences, includingmachine learning, AI, data science, statistics, simulations, computer graphics,multivariate analyses, matrix decompositions,signal processing, and so on.

**You need to know applied linear algebra, not just abstract linear algebra!**

The way linear algebra is presented in 30-year-old textbooks is different from how professionals uselinear algebra in computers to solve real-world applications in machine learning, data science, statistics, and signal processing.*For example*, the "determinant" of a matrixis important forlinear algebra theory, but should you actually use the determinant in practical applications?The answer may surprise you, and it's in this course!

If you are interested in learning the mathematicalconcepts linear algebra and matrix analysis,butalso want toapplythose concepts to data analyses on computers (e.g., statistics or signal processing), then this course is for you!You'll see all the maths concepts implemented in MATLABand in Python.

**Unique aspects of this course**

Clear and comprehensible explanations of concepts and theories in linear algebra.

Several distinct explanations of the same ideas, which is a proven technique for learning.

Visualization using graphs, numbers, and spaces thatstrengthens the geometric intuition of linear algebra.

**Implementations in MATLAB and Python**. Com'on, in the real world, you never solve math problems by hand! You need to know how to implement math in software!Beginning to intermediate topics, including vectors, matrix multiplications, least-squares projections, eigendecomposition, and singular-value decomposition.

Strong focus on modern applications-oriented aspects of linear algebra and matrix analysis.

Intuitive visual explanations of diagonalization, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and singular value decomposition.

Improve your coding skills!You do need to have a little bit of coding experience for this course (Ido not teach elementary Python or MATLAB), but you will definitely improve your scientific and data analysis programming skills in this course. Everything is explained in MATLABand in Python (mostly using numpy and matplotlib; also sympy and scipy and some other relevant toolboxes).

**Benefits of learning linear algebra**

Understand statistics including least-squares, regression, and multivariate analyses.

Improvemathematical simulations in engineering, computational biology, finance, and physics.

Understand data compression and dimension-reduction (PCA, SVD, eigendecomposition).

Understand the math underlying machine learning and linear classification algorithms.

Deeper knowledge of signal processing methods, particularly filtering and multivariate subspace methods.

Explore the link between linear algebra, matrices, and geometry.

Gain more experience implementing math and understanding machine-learning concepts in Python and MATLAB.

Linear algebra is a prerequisite of machine learning and artificial intelligence (A.I.).

**Why Iam qualified to teach this course:**

Ihave beenusinglinear algebra extensively in my research and teaching (in MATLAB and Python)for many years. Ihave written several textbooks about data analysis, programming, and statistics, that rely extensively on concepts in linear algebra.

**So what are you waiting for??**
