Linear Algebra

As a college graduate with a physics degree, I am well-versed in the theories and applications of linear algebra. Topics I have regularly seen and utilized include matrices and determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, change of basis, and orthogonality conditions. I like to think of linear algebra as an extremely generalized mathematical description of space, with a broad range of specific and useful applications in science and engineering.
