**Description**

You need to find out linear algebra!

Linear algebra is probably the foremost important branch of mathematics for computational sciences, including machine learning, AI, data science, statistics, simulations, special effects , multivariate analyses, matrix decompositions, and so on. You need to understand applied algebra , not just abstract linear algebra! The way algebra is presented in 30-year-old textbooks is different from how professionals use algebra in computers to unravel real-world applications. for instance , the “determinant” of a matrix is vital for algebra theory, but do you have to actually use the determinant in practical applications? the solution may surprise you, and it’s during this course! If you’re curious about learning the mathematical concepts algebra and matrix analysis, but also want to use those concepts to data analyses on computers, then this course is for you! Unique aspects of this course

Clear and comprehensible explanations of concepts and theories in algebra .

Several distinct explanations of an equivalent ideas, which may be a proven technique for learning.

Visualization using graphs, numbers, and spaces that strengthens the geometric intuition of algebra .

Implementations in MATLAB and Python. Com’on, within the world , you never solve math problems by hand! you would like to understand the way to implement math in software!

Beginning to intermediate topics, including vectors, matrix multiplications, least-squares projections, eigendecomposition, and singular-value decomposition.

Strong specialise in modern applications-oriented aspects of algebra and matrix analysis.

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

Benefits of learning algebra Understand statistics including least-squares, regression, and multivariate analyses.

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

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

Understand the maths underlying machine learning and linear classification algorithms.

Explore the link between algebra , matrices, and geometry.

**Why i’m qualified to show this course:
**I have been using algebra extensively in my research and teaching (primarily in MATLAB) for several years. I even have written several textbooks about data analysis, programming, and statistics, that rely extensively on concepts in algebra .
