MATH461 presents the main concepts and
terminology of linear algebra that play an essential role in science
and engineering. For example, linear algebra is used in signal
processing, control systems engineering,
structural analysis, large-scale computations, robotics, computer
graphics, environmental science, and many areas in physics.
Required: MATH 141; also one MATH/STAT course for
which MATH 141 is a prerequisite.
Class Times: Tuesday and Thursday: 2:00pm - 3:15pm.
